*I love this picture or possibly an optical illusion.
*I'm sure it is going to lead to some wonderful writing by my fourth graders.
*After discussing the picture a bit as a class, they get busy writing in their notebooks.
*The writers can record their thoughts, feelings, reactions, connections, reminders, or noticings.
*Another option is to create a fiction story based on the picture.
*A few of the writers will share what they wrote at the end of our writing time.
