Students across Lower School celebrated International Dot Day on September 15. This day is celebrated by focusing on a fun children's book written by Peter H. Reynolds entitled The Dot. The book is about a little girl who did not think she was creative until her teacher gave her confidence by saying to her, "Just make a mark and see where it takes you." What a great motivation it was for her and hopefully for everyone, to realize we are all creative, and all we have to do is just "make a mark."
In art, students used paint, oil pastels, and yarn to create works of art in dots. In technology, students used Paint 3D to explore spheres and in music, students incorporated a fun song about dots while using sign language. Students were introduced to the author in library through an interview with Peter H. Reynolds via YouTube.
The Lodge was transformed into a dot gallery for exploration and enjoyment by all. We hope that this experience will inspire you to make a mark & see where it takes YOU!
