Thank you all so much for writing us letters! We have received many so far and are in the process of writing you all back. YES! We will write you back if you send us a one! Just send them to The Cosgrove Institute, c/o Prairie Green School, 2009 400th Street SW, Oxford IA 52322.
On Monday each student wrote about another student. They described their physical traits, any history of them they could remember from our December presentations, personality traits, their likes and dislikes, information about their family and to finish it off, one thing they like about one them. I was very pleased with the results. The students did very well describing each other and could recall lots of information. When the students heard what their classmates said about them, they loved it. Lucy said to Claire, "That's the nicest story I have ever heard!" This activity lead us into our self portraits that did on Wednesday with Judd. Judd had set up mirrors in the art room and each artist studied themselves and did a pencil line drawing of what they saw. Judd was very impressed with every one's portrait and was proud of each of us for working through the challenge of a self portrait.
