Yesterday’s post was about making mistakes. A lot of our students are afraid to try anything because they think they will do it “wrong.” But there are lots of activities that don’t have a right or wrong way to do them. Sometimes creativity and having fun are important parts of learning, too.
If you are looking for an easy, engaging way to get this message across to your students, try participating in International Dot Day on September 15th, 2014. Read the fabulous book, The Dot, by Peter Reynolds. Try one of the fun suggested classroom activities in the Educator’s Handbook. Connect with someone using Skype in the Classroom. Or try the augmented reality app, ColAR, with the free Dot Day sheet. Check out this Pinterest board or this one. And don’t forget to check out the Celebri-dots here!
