"Time for School"
*This photograph speaks for itself.
*I know it will spark a lot of discussion and hopefully some deep meaningful writing.
*After sharing the picture, we will discuss our reactions.
*My fourth graders will then spend time writing in their writer's notebooks.
*They can record their thoughts, feelings, reactions, emotions, connections, or ideas.
*I also encourage them to create a fiction story if they would like.
*Some sharing will take place at the end of our writing time.
