September 15th is International Dot Day. Have you heard of it? Dot Day was inspired by Peter H. Reynolds’ book, The Dot, which encourages students to celebrate creativity, courage, and collaboration. Brought to life by educator Terry Shay, this day is dedicated to getting children to fearlessly make their mark on the world! Here are a few activities for International Dot Day that you can easily do with your class on edu.buncee.com. Use these ideas to celebrate and encourage creativity and self-exploration in your students.
