Picture Wednesday #14 (Travel Companion)...

"Travel Companion"

*After last week's photograph that was a bit on the serious side, I decided to use something lighter for this Wednesday' photograph.  

*I've used this picture in the past and always get wonderful writing from my students.  

*It is so fun to discuss and see what they think is happening in the photo.  

*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.
