Make Your Mark In Life!

For those of us in education who love a creative challenge, it is time to celebrate International Dot Day on September 15th. Join in the "global celebration of creativity, courage and collaboration" that began when Terry Shay read Peter H. Reynolds' book, The Dot, to his class in 2009. From that simple act International Dot Day grew and is now celebrated around the globe. 

In honor of the upcoming Dot Day 15, these classroom activities can prepare each classroom for a day of global celebration.

Read aloud The Dot. Then, watch the video. 


Celebrate with music.


Create artwork with any medium to represent The Dot. 
I chose to work with photography and digital photo-editing tools.


Weave words to create a poem that accompanies your dot.


Celebrate students' work with a gallery walk. 
Share the work with the world via social media.

Join the movement to make your mark on September 15th.



Your turn to create dot art and make your mark.

Please visit the Poetry Friday Round-Up 
at Robyn Hood Black's Life on the Deckle Edge.
