Coming up with original ideas to celebrate Dot Day is not always easy, especially when you celebrate it every year with Kindergarten, First and Second Graders.

In my last blog post, I shared that my students were spending a couple of days rotating between four different art makin' stations. We spent two days doing that and ended up with a TON of dots!

Fourth grade created a collaborative dot. Each student got 1/4 of a dot and then we put all of the pieces together. They loved this! Dot Day was inspired by The Dot…
