Getting crafty with Tagxedo

Tag-whaaaaaaaaat? Tagxedo!

Have you seen it?

Have you heard of it?

Have you used it before?

If not, you MUST! It is fabulous and can be used for so many projects!

I have been doing a LOT of Googling lately for cute classroom ideas and have noticed all of these cool 'wordle-type' art projects floating around on Pinterest and wanted in. So, I Googled and found Tagxedo! I have no idea if this is what others have used but I love it!
Here's how it works:

I have made one with my name, what class we are and all of the kids' names in a star shape. I am going to print, enlarge to A3 size, laminate and cut out to place in our front window. I always call my kids 'superstars' so the star seemed fitting.

I've also created individual stars with only their names on them. I'm going to put these on their desks so that they know where they will sit on the first day.
