Dot Day Celebration!

Students have been celebrating “International Dot Day” all week in the Learning Commons & classrooms of NPES!

Dot Day celebrates the book The Dot by Peter Reynolds. This book is about making your mark in the world. What will you do to make the world a more beautiful and special place?

Mrs. Yanssens’ art students started the celebration by creating Dot-inspired art work in class. They used the iPad app “Sketchbook”. Their pieces are displayed in the Learning Commons.

Kindergarten students have colored special dots for students to explore using the iPad app “Dot”. Cool!  Students are also enjoying other “dot stations” in the Learning Commons such as the “Dots” game on iPads and Guess how many Dots Estimation Station (a prize per grade level for the student and teacher who gets the closest to the correct amount).

Ms. Byrd Fort and Kindergarten students are reading the book Press Here with other classrooms in the USA via Skype.
