Picture Wednesday #11 (Dream Big)...

"Dream Big"

*This has to be one of the cutest photographs we have written about this year.

*I saw this photo via Twitter on "Fascinating Pictures" and knew my fourth graders would love it.

*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.
