This year, over 6 million people around the world celebrated Dot Day, and our class was delighted to take part!
We started a little early by joining in a Livestream event hosted by Discovery Education. It made quite an impact on our students, as you can see by their collaborative writing below.
We watched a Livestream of Peter Reynolds. We saw a lot of people in the USA. I’m so glad that we got to celebrate Dot Day with Peter Reynolds. There was a lot of kids that love the book “The Dot” because it is the best of the best! I learned that he tries to take care of the environment and likes colours. I like that he made this cool app that you can make a movie with.
I liked reading “The Dot” because it was inspiring! I noticed all the colours and circles. I like that the school is full of dots. I noticed that Vashti began to be a good artist. Vashti’s teacher and Vashti both said the same thing. I hope that boy will make lots more lines.
My favorite part of “The Dot” is when she painted all the beautiful dots. I also liked the part when she believed in herself. The important thing is that she tried!
Today I learned that you should never ever give up. I learned that you can take ideas and make your own. A dot can do anything! I want to write a masterpiece!
On Thursday, we had fun dressing up in dotty clothes, graphing and eating dots (Skittles), as well as making beautiful dot art.
We also enjoyed a visit from Madison, a Grade 8 student who had a special Dot Day story to share!
