Celebrating Dot Day
Christina Rutledge

International Dot Day, based on The Dot by Peter Reynolds, is celebrated every year on September 15ish. At Hanford Dole we celebrated school-wide, all week, in the library. Every student received a piece of "magic paper," downloaded and printed from QuiverVision.com that they could color. Then, using the Quiver app on iPads, we made their dots "come to life"! Great excitement and fun!!
