International Dot Day in 4-B at G-R by Jaden Hansen When I went into my classroom on September 15, 2016, Mrs. Bailey said it was International Dot Day. So all day we did activities. We painted dots with Q-Tips to make pictures. We had to make things out of dots in 10 minutes; it was so much fun. We learned about a man that lived in Reinbeck. A disease killed trees in our park. He helped plant lots of trees. When I heard about that I was amazed about what he did to make a difference. A blind man made a code for people who were blind. He made an alphabet code so that people who are blind can know the alphabet and learn. We also made fabric circles that we did a #BU sign in the middle and our own design on the outside of it to make a frame. That was International Dot Day in 4-B; it was so much fun that day. I wish it was like that every day, but it is not. But Mrs. Bailey is still the best teacher ever.

Why Celebrate Dots? by Nattalee Brinkman Mrs. Bailey celebrated International Dot Day with the 4-B Class. Why do you celebrate International Dot Day, you ask? Well, you celebrate it because you want to make a difference and make your mark on the world. They read the book The Dot from Peter H. Reynolds. They made designed to represent how to make a difference in the world. Nattalee Brinkman said, “I drew a lion because lions are bold, and you should be a bold person in the world.” 4-B also did a speed race when you had to make as many things out of dots as you can. One activity was pointillism - painting with dots. It was so cool.
