Happy Dot Day 2019!

Dot Day is based on a book called The Dot by Peter Reynolds and is celebrated every year on the 15th of September. The book tells the story of Vashti who struggles to be creative. At first,Vashti believes she can’t draw. After some encouragement from her teacher, she finally draws a simple dot. The teacher frames it and hangs it in his office. Vashti sees her dot framed and her confidence and motivation begins to grow.

The Dot challenges all of us to make our mark and see where it takes us! Dot Day began on Sept.15, 2009 and every year, teachers and students around the globe are inspired to showcase their creativity, courage, and collaboration. This year there are over 16 million participants globally from 182 countries. Wow!

Have a look at all of the Dot Day fun we had in Room 117:

      Dear Dove,
      It sounds like you had a good Dot Day! I thought the tattoos were pretty neat, too! We were pretty lucky to get them for free! I loved going outside and drawing chalk dots! It was such a nice day.
