International Dot Day!

Today was International Dot Day. It's a day to celebrate creativity, courage and collaboration. Peter H. Reynolds wrote the picture book, The Dot which has inspired this day. (To hear/see this book, click here.)

In class this morning, Mrs. vanRees read us The Dot and then we created our very own dot masterpieces. We were given 3 different options of paper and a variety of things to colour/draw with. The rest was left up to us to be as creative as we wanted.

Below is our online Art Gallery of our dots. We hope you enjoy!

Thanks for viewing our dots. Did you celebration International Dot Day? If so, we'd love to hear (or see) what you did!

Welcome Back!

Well, it's the long weekend and school starts on Tuesday! I have been busy getting the classroom ready for our class for the past couple weeks and can't wait to share it with all my new students! This year, we will be sharing our classroom with Miss Bobanovic! Miss B. will be our afternoon teacher, as I'm going to be teaching in the morning and home with my daughter, Emma in the afternoon.

Can't wait to meet you on Tuesday!
