Picture Wednesday #1 (Back to School)...

"Back to School"

*Besides making sure my students read every day, we also write everyday.

*My fourth graders and I keep a writer's notebook and we add entries each and every writing time.

*Each Wednesday I post a photograph for the class to observe and write about.

*After revealing the picture, we "discuss" for a bit as a group.

*The writers then get busy writing.  They can write about the picture, what it reminds them of, connections they have to it, or create a fiction story based on the image.  

*Our actual writing time can last anywhere from 5-10 minutes.  

*At the end of this mini-lesson, a few of the writers share out what they wrote in their notebook.

*Happy Writing!
