Picture Wednesday #5 (Sibling Love)...

"Sibling Love"

*What a beautiful photograph that grabbed my attention and pulled at my heartstrings.
*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.  

*The photos always lead to lots of conversation and the sharing of ideas.  I try to get them to write first and then we can share what we wrote and what we were thinking.

*The writers are really enjoying writing about these photographs. 

*I don't like to use "emotional" images a lot, but every once and awhile I think it is good to stretch my writers.
