Lesson seeds are ideas that can be used to build a lesson aligned to the CCSS. Lesson seeds are not meant to be all-inclusive, nor are they substitutes for instruction.
When developing lessons from these seeds, teachers must consider the needs of all learners. It is also important to build checkpoints into the lessons where appropriate
formative assessment will inform a teachers instructional pacing and delivery.

This tool turns words into a visually stunning word cloud, words individually sized appropriately to highlight the frequencies of occurrence within the body of text.
