It was so nice to meet so many of you at the curriculum open house!
We had a great time celebrating Dot Day on Friday. The children created a beautiful class mural, completely painted out of dots! They painted pictures with q-tips (dot painting), watched an interview with Peter Reynolds, author of The Dot, Ish and many more books, attended a school wide morning meeting, sang The Dot Song, used markers and water to create dots on coffee filters and created a picture out of a "magic dot".
