Picture Wednesday #27 (Guitar Land)...

"Guitar Land"

*A co-worker knows that I have my students write about an image each week.

*She sent me a link with "cool" pictures from around the world.  

*This one is from a farm in Argentina where they planted trees to form this guitar.  

*I'm pretty sure my writers will find lots of write about this week.  

*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.
