Pinterest-inspired decorating in the library! 2nd graders made dots after reading The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds. The picked out "frames" and signed their art. Then I laminated the dots and strung them together using paperclips. They definitely make the library more colorful!

International Dot Day! My afternoon classes are 4th, 3rd, 5th. I pushed the tables together and rolled out 3 long white papers- approximately 12'x18" each. We read "The Dot" and talked about the meaning of the story. 4th graders painted large and small colorful dots. 3rd graders filled in the negative space. 5th graders added details. Students LOVED it and did a great job working together. Finished pieces will be hung in the school library and cafeteria.
