Connect with Peter H. Reynolds For Dot Day On This Special Skype in the Classroom Event

For Dot Day, our friends at Skype in the Classroom have announced a very special event for all of us to be part of. 

On September 16 at 12:00pm CST, we can join Peter H. Reynolds and Candlewick Press as we celebrate Dot Day with others around the world.  

There’s no wrong way to make a dot! Join Skype in the Classroom and Candlewick Press in a global celebration of creativity, courage, and collaboration: International Dot Day!
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 millions of children and adults around the globe.
Peter H. Reynolds is a New York Times best-selling illustrator who has created many acclaimed books for children. He is the author-illustrator of The Dot, Ish, Sky Color, Rose’s Garden, The North Star, and Playing from the Heart, as well as the illustrator of Megan McDonald’s Judy Moody and Stink series.
On this site, you will find a wonderful activity kit for Dot Day with three amazing...
...templates for students to create their mark too. 
I added this event page and resources to our Dot Day Collection by Destiny that you can find here.
And remember, you can make connections with others for Dot Day here on this Google Doc too
I can't wait to celebrate within our school community and with others.  And I sure can't wait for this special event with my friend, Peter.  It is going to be a beautiful day to celebrate making our mark on the world.
