Go here to see all the opportunities available to celebrate International Dot Day with virtual connections, free printable templates, and join in with classrooms across the globe and celebrate making our mark on the world. Together, we find we become who we are by making a mark, to see where it goes — just like how we connect classrooms to see the power in the process.
International Dot Day is inspired by the book, The Dot by Peter Reynolds, in which one young person named Vashti finds confidence by never giving up, commits to starting somewhere and seeing where it takes her. This inspirational story has become a movement to "celebrate creativity, courage, and collaboration." Each year thousands more students across the globe join in the fun and celebrate to share how they will make their mark on the world.
Here in Alaska, we connect with the world through technology to share how we will globally "make our mark." Join us!
We participated in Dot Day as a home project as we were distance learning at the time. Thanks for including us!
Thank you for the opportunity to celebrate International Dot Day, inspired by your presentation. We liked your presentation very much. Together we watched the story The Dot, and created something, we hope you will like it.
We are public sector school teachers. We are trailblazers pioneers in embedding internalization, digitalization, and global dimension to curriculum. We enjoy connecting for Dot Day.
We had a lot fo fun making dots. We are learning about the countries of the world this year. In our school we are not formal, so the students call me Kitty. Thank you for partnering with us.
Our students do not speak English, but we were able to participate by reading The Dot in Spanish and using a translator. Enjoy!
OOOhhhhh-I am so proud of this video! Here are my 4-5th Grade Honors Choir students singing, "The Dot Song" We also had a Skype lesson with Michelle Carton's students in Anchorage, Alaska, made music note dots, and covered our school with art murals!
Thank you for the invitation, our kids loved reading the book and got inspired to draw and make their contribution!
