International Dot Day

We will make our mark!

There’s no better time to talk about beginning something great than at the beginning of a new school year. In the book, The Dot, by Peter H. Reynolds, a child’s teacher gives her the encouragement she needs to “make her mark” by simply beginning. This encouragement is just what she needs to begin down the road of creativity, bravery, and ultimately, making a difference.

First, we began to make our mark by designing our dots. Then we explored some augmented reality by using the app, Quiver. We had a fantastic discussion about the author’s purpose in writing, The Dot. We will share more on that later. For now, take a peek at some of our fun!

How will you make your mark?

  1. Dear Mrs. Moore,
    It’s so exciting to see The Techie Kids celebrating Dot Day too! I bet everyone had a fun time trying out Quiver. I will need to try it myself soon.
    What other fun project will you be doing this fall?

  2. Dear Mrs. Hembree,

    It is wonderful to hear from you! Your comment is the first we’ve received this school year. Thank you for helping us learn about blogging!

    We are wondering how you celebrated Dot Day. Mrs. Moore told us that we will visit your blog next. We had a lot of fun using the Quiver app. We highly recommend that your class try it too!

    You have asked a good question. Now we are thinking about what projects you have planned for the fall. Right now, our class knows we will be learning about blogging and sharing our Writer’s Notebooks with our readers. Sam would like to know if any of your students use a Writer’s Notebook.

    Warm regards from Michigan,
    Mrs. Moore and the Techie Kids
