Today students continued their work with photography after we read Tiny Perfect Things. We took the iPads and headed out onto the track around the field to uncover our own tiny (or not so tiny) perfect things. We then used Elaine Magliaro’s poem Things to do if you are a Pencil as a mentor text to get started on a poem to accompany the photo each student selected.
We didn’t get to any sort of publication today, so I don’t have student texts to share with you. That will have to come later.
But, I did write with my students, inspired by this photo and our mentor text.
This is so cool, top to bottom. Thanks so much for sharing!
Those last lines!

It would be interesting to write from the water fountains point of view.
