International Dot Day
In honor of International Dot Day on Wednesday, September 15 we had a celebration. Although a few students had heard "The Dot" by Peter Reynolds before, most had not, including two adults in my classroom. They enjoyed the story and responded with claps for Vashti and her spirit. After that students chose water colors or markers - both things they don't get enough of to create their own dot art. For 30 minutes students collaborated, created, felt capable. Enjoy the slideshow of our day as well as the students' writing about their dots.
This very swell. I have read that book and enjoy it very much.

I was searching for International Dot Day participants and I found your Wiki! Thanks for being part of the exciting day!
We have a Google Form for participants so we can map everywhere that the day was celebrated. If you haven't already, would you please take a moment to fill out the nine question form? http://goo.gl/RDqWa
