Picture Wednesday #24 (Yep...We're Ready!)...

Ready for School

*I recently came across a link with 25 photographs that came from the National Geographic Archives.

*You can find the other 24 photographs at the following link…

*As I scrolled through the images I was fascinated by all of them.  This one in particular caught my attention.

*It stood out as an image that my students would enjoy writing about.  

*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.
