Today was International Dot Day! First we watched the animated version of The Dot, by Peter Reynolds. The we sang the Dot Song without motions and with motions. Then we did some coffee filter and marker dot creations! This was the first year I tried this with a class and it was so much fun! Each child did 2, and we "broke the rules" of this instructional video for the second one and used the brown, black, and grey she said not to use! These came out so cool, too!
Finally, during STEM time, we looked through The Dot again to study the watercolor illustrations before breaking out our BRAND NEW watercolor sets and making our own dot pictures.
