Some of you may remember last year's school wide celebration of Dot Day (see here). Together, students in grades 1-8 created a magnificent, show-stopping art installation. Because our sweet little Kindergarteners were so new on the first day of art class, I felt it would have been too overwhelming for them to participate.
Enter this year's first graders. Experienced, wise, and ready for action!
Day One in the Art Studio: reading The Dot by Peter Reynolds.
We learned that every person's dot is different.
Just because it's theirs.
It's their "mark". Make your mark on the world. Contribute your creativity, your uniqueness. The world will be a better place because you did.
