International Dot Day

International Dot Day is celebrated on September 15th to share our creativity and self expression! It is based on a book called “The Dot” by Peter H. Reynolds in which a little girl changes her mind and heart to art by just making a mark. This day also builds collaboration globally as people are connected through the internet as well!

So we decided to have our own Dot Day! In the book the teacher tells the little girl to just make a mark and see where she goes, so that’s what we did! With watercolor paints and a piece of paper students were able to paint their own dot picture. The following week they had to write a story about what was happening in their picture!

A couple of stories were chosen to be read:
