International Dot Day September 15th-ish

Dot Day Challenge

Check out this smore about the Dot Day Challenge. "The Dot" written by Peter H. Reynolds has a great message about how EVERYONE can make their own mark.

I challenge teachers (K-12) to help your students make their mark!! Help your students create something, anything to make their mark.

Celebrate Creativity, Courage, and Collaboration

Imagine the power and potential of millions of people around the world connecting, collaborating, creating and celebrating all that creativity inspires and invites. I hope you will join the growing global community of creativity champions using their talents, gifts and energy to move the world to a better place.

The Dot

A simple book, but it's definitely one with a message to share. Actually, it has several important messages. Children will be able to relate to the central theme about "making a mark" and making a difference. As a teacher, I was also reminded about how important it is for us to support our students and believe in them. Vashti's teacher honored her simple dot by framing the signed picture, and this small bit of encouragement was enough to help Vashti discover a hidden talent.
