Idea for Teachers, Reviews, The Girl on the Mountain, Wordle Art

Ah, vanity.

I love wordle. Today I randomly copied some Amazon reviews of The Girl on the Mountain into a “wordle” maker. Just for fun. Well, really to see what words reviewers used a lot. (Frequency is indicated by word size).

If I’d selected only opinion and analysis words from reviews instead of full passages, the image above would be more revealing. Words like “however” and “much” wouldn’t be included, and some very nice words would stand out (thank you, reviewers). But that would seem like vanity. You say you don’t care, you want to see the analysis and judgment anyway? Click here.

To make your own wordle art, got to www.wordle.net. Wordle is a cool idea for children’s writing exercises, Christmas cards (wordle your year’s events instead of writing that letter), and more. Have fun!
