Picture Wednesday #21 (The Cool Bus)...

"The Cool Bus"

*I following "Fascinating Pictures" on Twitter.  

*When this one came across my feed, I stopped and enjoyed it.  

*I'm a huge dog lover and my students know that.  

*I try to use different types of photos each Wednesday.

*Over the years, I've learned fourth graders absolutely LOVE dogs and other animals.  

*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 and talking about these photographs.
