Dot Day 2017

UPDATE 8/16/2021: For a more recent post on Dot Day with better links and resources, visit this page!

It’s almost September 15th-ish, which means that Dot Day is quickly approaching!  For those of you who have not encountered Dot Day before, it is an international event inspired by the Peter Reynolds book, The Dot. It’s all about celebrating creativity and “making your mark”!  In last year’s post about Dot Day, I shared a few “new to me” Dot Day ideas for the celebration.  This year, Breakout Edu has announced a brand new breakout adventure for elementary and middle school students based on The Dot. Students must solve the clues to set creativity and inspiration free. I recommend doing the breakout activity and then giving your students the opportunity to unleash their own inner artists as a follow-up!

  1. I can remember when I first discovered this story-it’s one of my favorites. I love celebrating it with Dot Day-not sure if we’ll be able to fit it in this year with our late start but I appreciate the reminder and the resources. 🙂
