DOT Day

9 Sep

In advisory class today, all grade 6 students did an activity related to The Dot by Peter Reynolds. What does this story mean to you? Do you ever feel like Vashti? How do you feel about starting something new? How do you feel when things seem difficult to do? What is something you would like to improve? How will you “make your mark” on 6th grade? Post a comment, and answer one or more of these questions. Share a story or your opinion on The Dot.  Here are some other links related to the story:

It has been a busy week with MAP Testing the past three days.  We will get back on track with classes on Monday.  If you have any good photos from DOT Day, let me know or email them to me.   Grade 6 has always shown the most school spirit on days like these. Come on, Grade 6!

The Dot – Make your Mark

In advisory class today, all grade 6 students did an activity related to The Dot by Peter Reynolds.  What does this story mean to you? How do you feel about starting something new? How do you feel when things seem difficult to do?  How will you “make your mark” on 6th grade?  Post a comment, and answer one or more of these questions.  Share a story or your opinion on The Dot.  I look forward to reading your comments.  Just a reminder – bring a writing journal to class on Monday (optional), or you can use a school-printed notebook. Have a great weekend.    Mr. Martin
