I'm off into school tomorrow to do a lesson about the Nativity story and I've decided to use word clouds to help the children to think about the story.
Most of the children are very familiar with what happens but word clouds picking up on specific words really help to open the story up in a different way...
I've made two word clouds by copying and pasting the words of Luke 2:1-20 into the creator at Tagxedo.
The first one is simply a star shape that they can look at and see which words strike them most (including ones that puzzle them and we can talk about!)
The second is an inverted star, with space for children to write and draw what sticks with them most about the story.
Printable versions of the word clouds are available here.
