DANBURY, Conn. -- Students at South Street School in Danbury celebrated International Dot Day, a day inspired by author Peter H. Reynolds’ book "The Dot."
Teachers at South Street celebrated the day on Thursday, Sept. 22, by reading and discussing the book with kindergarten and first-grade students, making artwork and singing a song. The project culminated with an all-school assembly in the cafeteria, where the dot artwork was displayed.
According to thedotclub.org: “The Dot is a story of a caring teacher who dares a doubting student to trust in her own abilities by being brave enough to ‘make her mark.’ What begins with a small dot on a piece of paper becomes a breakthrough in confidence and courage, igniting a journey of self-discovery and sharing, which has gone on to inspire countless children and adults around the globe.”
