GIANT Dots To Help Us Make Our Mark On The World Through Pictures!

I have a partner in crime in a lot of the crazy, fun ideas that happen in the library....Diana, our library paraeducator. We both have come up with lots of ideas over the last seven years of working together in the library.... Last week was one of those as we planned for International Dot Day. We were brainstorming and planning Dot Day activities when all the sudden I had the idea to make a GIANT DOT to take our students picture with....You know one of those photo props that your head goes…

What can you do with a dot?

A great project to begin the year is a DOT project. The kindergartners read the book The Dot, by Peter Reynolds. I love this book! We also view a slide show of some artworks that use dots (Australian Aboriginal, Seurat). The first day we trace circles on colored construction paper. We use lids, cups and rolls of masking tape. The children cut these circles out and glue them to a white piece of paper. On the second day, they finish cutting their circles and then they start adding dots to…

Blomstrende "Dot Day-billeder" fra 5. årgang

Bogen "The Dot" er en virkelig skøn fortælling, der handler om "at vokse" med de udfordringer, man møder på sin vej, og hvem vil ikke gerne det? Min 5. årgang i billedkunst har deltaget i "International Dot Day", og de har fået fremstillet de fineste blomsterbilleder. Eleverne har været kritiske undervejs i processen, med de er på meget modig vis vokset med opgaven. Se bare de flotte billeder, der er kommet ud af det.

Dots, Dots and More Dots!!

You may remember that I mentioned International Dot Day (which is today!!) in this post here. Well, 4th graders finished their patterned dots this week. They are now posted in two hallways and in the Art Room. The task for these students, using a color wheel for reference, was to paint their concentric circles in pairs of complementary colors with black and white line design circles separating the colors. This was an opportunity to revisit the color wheel, design line motifs for the…

International Dot Day

September 15th is known as International Dot Day because that's when the book, The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds, was published in 2003. This book is about a little girl named Vashti who does not believe that she can draw. With the help of her teacher, she realizes that she actually is an artist. This book invites students to explore their creativity by simply "making a mark and seeing where it takes them." I, along with over 350,000 other educators from across the world, registered to…

It all starts with a dot.

I always start my Kindergarteners out with with a high success project that gives me a glimps into where they are fine motor wise. I read the book The Dot and we talk about how art can start with a simple dot. Each child then gets to make a dot of their own. When they are finished we glue it to a gold colored paper and use gold marker to make swirls. They frame it in "swirly gold" just like the art teacher in the story does. The best part is the hall display. The kids get so excited to see…

off to a hot start.

My goodness. Nothing like a solid week of near triple digits to kick off the school year. The heat has been oppressive. That said the kids have done a great job keeping it together in our fan cooled classrooms. Only a couple have actually melted;) Despite the heat, the art learning is off to a great start in room 18. This year, like the past couple years, I did a collaborative project with my 3rd, 4th, and 4th graders the first week. I meet with each of the classes for an abbreviated lesson…
