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.
