Dot Day – My Favorite Time of the Year

on August 10, 2013

I spent part of yesterday working in my classroom, and one of the first things that I needed to do was prepare this…








It is just an empty space right now, but it is ready – and so am I! We are ready for International Dot Day! I have to admit that this is one of my favorite activities each year, and it is one that I always use within the first week of school. If there’s anything that I want my students to do throughout the year, it is to be inspired and connected. If you are interested in participating this year, there are few easy ways to get started.

1. Sign up on the Dot Day website.

2. “Like” the Dot Club Facebook page and follow them on Twitter for updates.

3. Read The Dot by Peter Reynolds. Love it! Read it again.

4. Check out these ideas for inspiration from Peter Reynolds.

5. Decide how you want to display and share your students’ dots and help them mark their marks!
