Picture Wednesday #32 (Tree Camping)

"Tree Camping"

*Years ago I team taught with a co-worker during our language arts blocks.

*That was the year we started our "Picture Wednesday".

*She sent me several links with multiple images in each link.

*This link was called "Things Not on My Bucket List".  I thought it would lead to such great 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.
