*I love our Picture Wednesdays. It is such fun to find a picture that I will share with my students.
*When I saw this picture, it reminded me of New Year's Eve so I thought it would be perfect for our first picture of 2015.
*I share the photo with my class and we discuss for a bit.
*Then it is time to get busy writing. They can record their thoughts, feelings, reactions, reminders, or ideas related to the picture.
*The writers can also create a fiction story based on it if they would like.
*At the end of our writing time, a few of the students will share what they wrote.
