Picture Wednesday #26 (Pink Straw)...

"Pink Straw"

*Throughout the year I try to use images that are somewhat of an optical illusion.  

*Years ago a colleague of mine sent me a collection of images that are optical illusions.

*Last week we did our first "optical illusion" and it was a hit.  I thought it would be fun to use another image similar to that again this week.  This one should be fun to write 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.
