On September 15th(ish) teachers, librarians, students, and families are celebrating International Dot Day! Inspired by Peter H. Reynolds’ The Dot, Dot Day recognizes the importance of creativity, courage, and collaboration. The Dot is a book that shows kids the creative process and how our values can affect our perception. We love it so much that we made it a top pick on our growth mindset list! In celebration of Dot Day, we have created the perfect The Dot activity for your budding bookworms. It is sure to help inspire creativity in kids who think they “can’t.”
The Dot Activity
This set of 28 FREE printable gallery picture frames are perfect for you and your kids to fill with unique The Dot-inspired designs.
