"Just make a mark...

...and see where it takes you."
This quote by Vashti's art teacher in the iconic art class book The Dot, by Peter H. Reynolds, has become our motto in 3rd grade over the last two weeks. We have a great start on our dot inspired works and hope to participate in the International Dot Day celebration on September 15. More to come!

Our beginning of the year motto, which I made into a class poster

Students chose which media they preferred
Using dots and marks to get our compositions started

Watching the animated version of the book on our projector


  1. Another great lesson, Hope. Love the dot, ish, allof his books.Your poster turned out great and I didn't even know about Dot Day. Thanks!


  2. I printed out copies of the "make a dot and see..." posters I found on Pinterest! I love the Dot! Doing a dot project with my K's to start the school year.

  3. These look so sophisticated for 3rd grade! Love it.
    I am trying to figure out a way to have my middle school students participate in Dot Day. I think the message of the book is so important.

  4. These projects look pretty great! Thanks for posting!
