The Teacher Teaching The Teacher !



School has started and Anna and I are together working on a project! Anna has just introduced a new lesson to her 5th graders looking at Georgia artists. She will be teaching them about Beverly Buchanan's and Jane Coslick's Cottages/Shacks. They will create their own rendering out of card board and be inspired by the Jane Coslick's colors, "her" passion, exteriors, and charm. Students will get a chance to name their own cottage (ex. Luscious little cottage). Can't wait to see how they turn out! I will post pictures when the students finish!

I have a great idea.. let's all make one...take a photo and send it to me.. maybe the the winner could have a week at the beach... or a cottage book if you live to far away.
