We began our celebration of International Dot Day by reading Peter H. Reynolds beautifully illustrated book, The Dot. Like so many of our students, Vashti is convinced that she can't draw. Her teacher finally convinces her to make her mark by drawing a single dot and signing her name. She then lets her mark take her on a creative journey of making even more dots, each more creative and beautiful than the previous one. After a brief discussion, we were on to making our own marks (dots) using the ColAR dot coloring page and app. Squeals of delight along with some oohs and aahs were heard as the students saw their dots come to life! It was such a fun activity to introduce augmented reality, to enjoy a heartwarming book, and to jumpstart a successful school year by making our marks!
