Picture Wednesday #12 (Have You Seen the Turkey?)...

Have You Seen the Turkey?  

*Today was the last day of school before the Thanksgiving holiday.

*I wanted to find something fun for my students to write about and celebrate the holiday.

*This particular photograph fits the bill and then some.  We got some great laughs when we first saw 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.
