In honor of International Dot Day, please enjoy these free downloadable DOTS. You can turn the dots into faces or animals… or maybe add patterns to the dots or perhaps more dots to the dots. “Just make a mark and see where it takes you.” (and don’t forget to sign and celebrate your work!)
Feel free to share the dots with anyone you like – your kids, your students, your neighbors, your co-workers – you get the idea.
International Dot Day is inspired by the book The Dot by Peter Reynolds. 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.
