Dot Day Fun!

This year was the first year that our KBS Knights have celebrated International Dot Day.  Our students wore dots as a part of the fun, created dots in art class for a fantastic Dot Tree, and read The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds.  Many of our students enjoyed singing The Dot Song and a Skype visit with another class!  Our computer lab teacher, Mrs. Donna Burris, showed the students how to create dots and fill them with color using Publisher!

Students created Dot Day bookmarks to share with our Skype friends.  We hope they like them!

The students, who came to The Merry Media Center @KBS to Skype, made bookmarks for our new Skype friends.  Our school connected with 15 other schools from a variety of states.  I greatly appreciate the members of my PLN, who we connected with this year!  Some of these friends included:  Jennifer Reed, Matthew Winner, Andy Plemmons, Sarah Staudt, Kathy Schmidt, Kathryn Cole, Esther Uribe, Chad Lehmann, Donna MacDonald, Sarah Wendorf, Cristol Kapp, Jenny Lussier, Shawna Ford, and Meg Allison.  Some of the great activities that we shared with our buddies were having an Elephant and Piggie Dance Party (with Mr. Winner), reading Press Here (until interrupted by a fire drill– with Donna MacDonald), creating a nifty collaborative dot (with Mr. Plemmons), Mystery Skype experiences (with Cristol Kapp, Kathy Schmidt, and Chad Lehmann), reading The Dot with many wonderful classes!  We had so much fun!
