Mark your calendar for September 15th, which is International Dot Day! Sponsored by FableVision Learning in coordination with Peter Reynolds, author of The Dot, this is a day on which educators pledge to encourage their students’ creativity. You can sign up formally to participate in International Dot Day, or you can choose your own way to celebrate this day of imagination. The website offers ideas for ways in which to make this a memorable day for your students as well as videos from some of last year’s participants. You can also go to this link for some ideas from Peter Reynolds on how to incorporate his wonderful book into your classroom.
Thanks to Cari Young, librarian at Fox Run Elementary in N.E.I.S.D., and author of The Centered School Library, for this great tip!
