Ms.J follows a sharing site for young writers called “Lend Me Your Literacy” (lendmeyourliteracy.com and @literacylender on Twitter). One of the great things they do there is share high quality picture prompts for writing. Today the 2Js used one of these pictures during a writing round in Daily 5. After we brainstormed some writing ideas as a class, students got the chance to write their own short paragraphs. Below is a picture of the prompt our kids used today, as well as a slideshow of some of their stories.
