International Dot Day
This celebration is being led by Peter H. Reynolds, the author of a children's book called "The Dot" to celebrate children's creativity and imagination. Our class discussed bravery, confidence and also encouraging others.
We enjoyed designing our own dot then using colAR Mix app to watch our dod pop up!

We tried pointillism art.

We also made a Dots candy creation!

I have created an individual blog page for each student. This is a place where your child can share their leaning with you and the world. Please take time to visit your child's blog and leave a comment. Your comments mean the world to them! I also encourage you to share the blog with your family members. Kidblog is a safe site. All posts and comments have to be prescreened and approved by me before going on the web.
