Picture Wednesday #7 (Unity Day)...

"Unity Day - Kids Against Bullying"

*Today our school had their first school "spirit" day.

  *We celebrated Unity Day and our push for "Kids Against Bullying."  

*The students and staff were invited to wear ORANGE to show their unity.  Anti-Bullying videos were shown during lunch and all of our students were invited to sign our pledge.    

*For our writer's notebook today I wanted to tie in this celebration with our writing so I shared these three photos.  

*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.
