Last year, I had a wonderful time reading Peter H. Reynolds' The Dot to three different classes, only one of which was mine. I really enjoyed the conversations I had with all three classes about creativity and what constitutes "art." (You can read my post about those conversations here: International Dot Day 2011.) I'm especially excited about this year's Dot Day as I recently became a FableVision Ambassador; I'm so proud to have been included with this wonderful group of dedicated educators!
Teachers and students around the world are getting ready to participate again this year, and we'd love to see even more participants. The locations of everyone who has signed up to participate can be seen in this map:
