Picture Wednesday #23 (Sailing Ship)...

Sailing Ship (or is it?)

*Each Wednesday I share a picture with my fourth graders which leads into our daily writing.

*You can never go wrong with an optical illusion with kids.  They love them!

*We start with a class discussion about the photo and have a few students share what they see.

*Then the writers record their thoughts, feelings, reactions, what they notice, or create a fiction story.

*The actual writing time is anywhere from 5-10 minutes.  

*At the end of the writing time, a couple of writers will share from their notebooks.
