Peter H.Reynolds tarafından yazılan kitap "Nokta", resim yapamadığını düşünen bir çocuğun öğretmeninin dokunuşuyla yeteneğini keşfetme yolculugu... Sadece cocuklar icin degil, eğitimciler icin de ilham verici bir hikaye. Cesaret, azim, yaraticilik... #yaratıcılık #internationaldotday #peterhreynolds #cocukkitaplari #childandbooks

It took a while but our dot day sculptures are decorating the Art Building here at UNIS. Whimsical, fun and a dotty twist. #internationaldotday #thedot #peterreynolds #artteachersofinstagram #unishanoiexcellentlearning

Throwback to International Dot Day in #gradeone based on Peter H. Reynolds' classic book, THE DOT. Make your mark! We also incorporated this into our poetry work. What a wonderful message this book sends and such rich literacy lessons. *side note: we had a TON of materials for the students to use but I didn’t get a chance to capture it all 😅

Pre-first students observing their world - looking for and photographing dots! #westminsterschools #internationaldotday #makinglearningfun

We had #internationaldotday in my classroom recently. Here’s our dot board and then some of my favorites. #notstrictlyscience

Here are a few close ups of our collaborative dot display mural, inspired by Kandinsky and @peterhreynolds of course. Each child filled a square piece of paper with painted concentric circles using one or two analogous colors as well as black and white to create tints and shades. I just LOVED watching my students get so excited about color mixing and seeing the beautiful values they created. Each individual piece is unique and beautiful just like the artists who created them! 🌈🌈🌈🌈 #collaborativeart #collaborativemural #rainbowmural #communityconnections #artteachersofinstagram #artteacher #elementaryart #dotday #internationaldotday #dotday2018 #rainbowwall

Finally got this year’s dot day display up (better later than never right?) It’s a little bit of last year’s rainbow mixed with inspo from @mskitlang @augy_artclass / Kandinsky! Whatever it is, it’s beautiful, colorful and it makes my kiddos happy which makes ME happy! 🌈🌈🌈🌈 #dotday #internationaldotday #rainbowwall #rainboweverything #artteacher #arted #elementaryart #teachersofinstagram #teacher #teacherlife @fablelearn

1st & 2nd graders created colorful dots inspired by The Dot by Peter Reynolds in time for #internationaldotday on Sept 15.

Children at The Marina in Lincoln have been encourage to 'make their mark' as part of International Dot Day.
This global celebration of creativity and collaboration takes its inspiration from a book called ‘The Dot' written by Peter H Reynolds. It tells the story of a caring teacher who dares a doubting pupil to trust in her own abilities by being brave enough to “make her mark”. What begins with a small dot on a piece of paper becomes a breakthrough in confidence and courage, igniting a journey of self-discovery and sharing, which has gone on to inspire countless children and adults around the globe.

We used this inspirational story to encourage our children to make their own mark and develop their friendships. Starting with a dot we let the children transform this simple mark into whatever they wanted using the notion of ‘make a mark and see where it takes you’

The children also decorated circles, cut them into quarters and then along with their friend’s segments put them back together to make a whole circle.

Here are some of the children’s comments: “My dot can be whatever I want it to be.” “My picture and your picture make a jigsaw.” You can find ‘The Dot’ on YouTube by following this link. It’s a great read.
