PAC Elementary Celebrates Dot Day
The Dot is a story about a young girl named Vashti who is a reluctant artist. When her teacher says, "Just make a mark and see where it takes you," Vashti begrudgingly jabs a dot on to her paper. The teacher asks Vashti to sign her creation. The next day Vashti finds her "masterpiece" hanging on the wall behind her teacher's desk in a gold frame. Vashti realizes she can do better and proceeds to create a gallery of "dot" masterpieces using splashes and swirls of color. That one little dot marks the beginning of Vashti’s journey of surprise and self-discovery. That special moment is the core of Peter H. Reynolds’ delicate fable about the creative spirit in all of us.
This was a day to motivate students to celebrate their own creativity.
All classes - Prep - 6th Grade began their Dot Day Activities by reading The Dot. Some classrooms read the hardcopy book, while others utilized the online version.
Prep - 6th Grade students then participated in different activities throughout the day to learn how they can "Make their mark" on the world.
