Picture Wednesday #31 (Umbrella Kindness)

"Umbrella Kindness"

*I've used this IMAGE in the past and have always had great results with the writing.

*This picture just "screams" kindness and there is such a story behind it.  

*One of the favorite themes of my classroom is "kindness".  There can never be enough kindness.  

*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.
