Picture Wednesday #6 (Lonely Cabin)...

"Lonely Cabin"

*We had our first field trip today.  My class went to a local outdoor science center to study different aspects of water. This goes along with a science unit we do on water.  

*We spent the morning next to a beautiful lake taking water samples and learning about different properties of lake water.  It was a gorgeous fall morning here in Minnesota.  

*I wanted to pick something that related to our experience this morning for my writers to write about during our notebook time.  

*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.
