Why Celebrate International Dot Day? by The 4-B Kids

October 4, 2018

We were determined to finish the 500-piece rainbow marble puzzle. Putting the puzzle together was one of the activities in our celebration of International Dot Day. Dot Day is celebrated to encourage everyone to make their mark on the world - to make a difference. We played games involving dots: Logic Dots, Pipeline, SOS, and On the Dot. We colored our initials in the style of Georges Seurat ~ pointillism. Designs were created on canvases or on embroidery hoops. We ate candy dots. The poster on the door was Shel Silverstein’s poem “Here I Go Down Circle Road.” Mrs. Bailey read two biographies I Dissent: Ruth Bader Ginsburg Makes Her Mark and Six Dots: A Story of Young Louis Braille. Both Justice Ginsburg and Louis Braille have made important contributions to the world. Working in our base groups, we started the puzzle on Dot Day and, even though it was hard, we never gave up and finished a week later. Our teacher said we were resilient. She read Mia Hamm: Winners Never Quit. Our quote for handwriting was by Mia Hamm: “I’ve worked too hard and too long to let anything stand in the way of my goals. I will not let my teammates down, and I will not let myself down.” Our resilience paid off because when it was done, the puzzle was beautiful!
