Picture Wednesday #2 - Flying Orca...

"Flying Orca"

*How beautiful is this photograph.  I just love it.  Reminds me of my trip to Alaska several years ago.  

*This was the picture I used with my writers today.

*Each Wednesday we write in our writer's notebooks about a particular image.

*They can record their thoughts, reactions, connections, likes/dislikes, reminders, noticings, or anything else they would like.  

*Some of the writers choose to write a fiction story based on the picture.

*We write between five and ten minutes and then do a quick share at the end.  

*A writer today commented that she can't WAIT to see what next Wednesday's photo is.  A good sign that I am hooking them into the writing process.
