Happy International Dot Day!

Happy International Dot Day!

VDS celebrated International Dot Day, in honor of the book, "The Dot" by Peter Reynolds. It’s the story of Vashti, a girl who became upset in art class because she didn’t think she could draw. Her teacher challenged her to “Just make a mark and see where it takes you.” VDS Library Media Specialist Megan Mercogliana had students participate in a STEM activity by creating structures using dot candies and toothpicks. They made their own "mark" by coloring circles and using an app to make them 3d. Click this link above to learn more about Dot Day!
