Dot Day

Did you know that September 15th was International Dot Day?
First we read the book 'The Dot' by Peter Reynolds. The sixth graders paired up with the kindergartners to make colorful dots. We used the markers in Mrs. Bearor's classroom. I interviewed Mrs. Wenzel and she said, "We did this project because, it shows children that you don't have to be an artist to have your art to have value."

Here are some quotes from Kindergartners about the activity:

"It was fun!"

"I liked working with big kids."
