International Dot Day
How will you make your mark?
How to Connect the Dots 2021

Join our "Connect the Dot Day" project to celebrate International Dot Day!

 

 

Students "Make their Mark" by creating a Dot any size using any materials, sign their dot, tell how they will make their mark, then share with others.

 

Here’s our project timeline:

1. Students will watch an interactive  version of ’The Dot"  by  author/illustrator Peter Reynolds during their Library visit and discuss the project details.

 

2. Sometime during the week of Dot Day, students will make their dot, either in the classroom or at home, to turn in for our project "Connect the Dots @ Bay Farm"

 

3. Students will create their Dot, sign it, and will also think about "making their mark" on the world. They will be encouraged to write inside their dot a message of how they will make a mark to make a difference in the world. Turn in your Dot to the "Dot Basket" in the Library/Media Center when your Dot is ready.

 

4. On Dot Day (September 15ish) and the week of International  Dot Day we will be "Connecting the Dots." We will string and "publish" our dots throughout the school and connect them with yarn links to show the power we have in making a difference when we focus our energies together.

 

You can participate as a class, or individually to let everyone know that you will be creating a Dot and give feedback about making your mark!

 

Happy Reading....and Dot Making!
