Individual "dots"...glued to frame like in the story. This will be a great follow up to the cut paper collage we just did about the dot, or might be a save for next year...hmmm...

As a kinder and 1st project we read the book The Dot. A cute story about a little girl who discovers art through a simple series of dot paintings. The students were able to paint their own dot, or not-a-dot, with watercolors. This was a nice simple opportunity for students to use paints and learn the expectations for using watercolors. Ask them why brushes don't like bad hair days!

This discussion leads us to the power of the word YET and how when we can't do something, we should say, "I can't do this YET" instead of "I can't do this." See our class chart below for The Dot by Peter Reynolds // Two Reflective Teachers
