Thanks to Christene, I found out about ABCya! Word Clouds. It’s similar to Wordle but more basic and perhaps easier for elementary students, though Wordle is pretty straightforward. Unlike Wordle though, a word will not become larger the more you type it. It is totally random but is easier and more coherent to save as a JPEG. Below is an example of my above text. Fonts, colour and layout can also be changed. You may be interested in other mapping, timeline and brainstorm tools here.
