Picture Wednesday #28 (HELP!)…


*Today is the Wednesday before Spring Break!

*We are all ready to get away for a week, relax, and of course have extra reading time.

*One activity we participated in this week was creating an iTrailer to promote a spring break destination.

*I thought this would be a fun picture to write about before we head out on our adventures.  

*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.
