Picture Wednesday #33 (Man's Best Friend)

"Man's Best Friend"

*This is one of my favorite images that I use during the school year.

*There is so much going on here that it leads to such great writing.  

*There is story before and after this photo and I encourage my writers to really think about the story.  

*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.
