Character Word Clouds

Mrs. Montgomery’s fifth grade class has been studying literary elements. Two elements are featured each week. This week the class studied character and setting. One activity was to create a word cloud using descriptive words to show character. Each student put their name on a piece of paper. The papers were passed around the room and the students were to write a descriptive word about their each classmate. These words were then typed into to create their word cloud. The students really enjoyed seeing the list of positive affirmations written by their classmates and learned more about descriptive words as well!
