Today, September 15, is International Dot Day!
International Dot Day is a day to celebrate creativity and how each of us is going to "make our mark". And WE are having fun with Dots all day today!
For a better understanding of International Dot Day, here is the story The Dot, by Peter H. Reynolds.
And here is The Dot song.
Schools all over the world are using these materials to celebrate creativity and taking a risk! It goes along perfectly with our classroom theme this year of Create Bravely.
We have already been making dots with our wonderful Art teacher. Each dot is unique and special, just like us. We also made Dots in class to share with another class that we are Mystery Skyping with!

The third graders also wrote comments on this blog post about how they are going to make their mark. They wrote their verb in all caps to practice identifying the verb in the sentence.
So, for example, Mrs. Essenburg might write:
I am going to make my mark on the world by TEACHING creative and inspiring students.
Check out the comments by third graders below. We would love comments from visitors about how they will make their mark on the world!
