A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words...?

But what if the picture is of words? Words carefully chosen by young writers in our schools. The first photo is a shared write from Joseph Teres. The book This + That by Amy Krause Rosenthal was the inspiration and the purpose was to make the Winnipeg Jets player coming for I Love to Read feel welcome. The audience was teachers and students in the school because the writing was posted in the hallway.

The next photos are from Harold Hatcher School. Check out these restaurant reviews. Even though I am a bit of a foodie, these writers just might make me give McDonald's another chance.

Notice the sticky notes. These were strategically placed on the board by the teacher with an invitation to respond to the writing. It was hard to tell who was more excited, the writers of the stickies or the receivers. Win win.

Notice the additional opportunity for shared writing in the description of the pieces. Think of your hallways as a place to publish, a place to find audience.

Notice the great paper. On your behalf, I asked... it comes from Dollarama.
