Celebrate Creativity, Courage, and Collaboration on International Dot Day

by Lori Gracey
International Dot Day

International Dot Day, a global celebration, began when teacher Terry Shay introduced his classroom to Peter H. Reynolds’ book The Dot on Sept. 15, 2009.

The Dot is the story of a caring teacher who dares a doubting student to trust in her own abilities by being brave enough to “make her mark.” What begins with a small dot on a piece of paper becomes a breakthrough in confidence and courage, igniting a journey of self-discovery and sharing, which has gone on to inspire countless children and adults around the globe.

You and your students can also celebrate International Dot Day by downloading the free Educator’s Handbook (free registration required) with student handouts and activities. Then visit the gallery of past projects for more inspiration and ideas.

Please share with us how you will celebrate on (or around) International Dot Day!
