Day 17: International Dot Day

Today, I got up before the entire school and read the incredible children’s book, the Dot. If you haven’t read the Dot, I urge you to. It’s an incredible piece of children’s literature that tells a great story of the value of just making an effort, even when you don’t think you’re good at all.

It also turns out that International Dot Day, was celebrated a few days ago, and so I decided that we would do a dot painting exercise this evening. I spent a few minutes gathering markers, crayons, paint and paint brushes, and brought them and pieces of paper with a frame border and simply asked kids to make their mark, and sign it, of course.

The results were stunning—we create 70 dots, and everyone seems to have a great time. IMG 1170IMG 1172
