Observing and Wondering

Good morning! Today we are going to start reading a new biography about a very famous artist named Georgia O'Keeffe. We have been learning how important it is to be able to ask and answer questions, and today we will use the painting below to practice asking questions. During the week, I hope we will be able to answer many of those questions!

Today you will also practice observing, which means looking at something without judging it or analyzing it. Use words like: I see...., In the picture/ painting there is/ there are....
When you use words like I think... or It looks like... you are presenting an opinion rather than a fact. 

This is very hard to do, but today we will practice it!

Your task today before reading:
1) Write one observation.
2) Write one question.  (make sure you remember your punctuation!)
3) Have fun!
