Picture Wednesday #3 (Careful Biking)...

"Careful Biking"

*How cool is this photograph.  I just love it.  Pictures like this are great thought provokers.

*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.  

*We didn't TALK about the picture before writing because I wanted the students to get their own ideas and opinions down first.

*A great class discussion was had after the writing as to whether this was a real picture or a fake picture with a type of optical illusion.

*We had writers on both sides of the "debate".
