Preschooler, Kindergarten, and First Grade had a different experience during Library this week. Instead of listening to Mrs. Matthews read a book, they watched the book video of The Dot by Peter Reynolds. A little girl, Vashti, who thinks she can’t draw is challenged by her art teacher to make a mark on the page and then sign it. She goes on to make more and more dots. The students then made their mark by creating their own “dot” pictures.
The pictures were then turned into 3D creations through the Colar app (http://colarapp.com/). The app is free as well as several sheets to color. Parents can then download the app and view their child’s pictures.
Here are some samples of the creations from Tuesday:
