Create Vocabulary Lessons With BoomWriter's Trending Words

Disclosure: BoomWriter is an advertiser on FreeTech4Teachers.com.

WordWriter is a free service within the BoomWriter platform that enables you to build vocabulary lists that you want your students to use in writing. You can have students write fiction or non-fiction pieces in which they have to use words that you assign to them. As the teacher you can log-in and see your students' progress toward correctly using each of the words correctly.

Toward the end of the last school year BoomWriter introduced a feature called Trending Words. Trending Words allows you to see the most frequently used vocabulary words across the WordWriter platform. You can filter the trending words list by grade level to find words that are appropriate for your students. You can select words from the Trending Words list to import into writing projects that you give to your students. In the video embedded below I provide a demonstration of this process.
