Picture Wednesday #29 (Shade Pole)…

Shade Pole

*We are back from spring break and time to write about images.  

*We work a lot on the perspective of characters in our reading.

*I thought it would be fun and cool to have them write about different perspectives in art and/or images.

*This image was found on the internet and I thought it would lead to some "deep" writing.    

*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.
