I have read The Dot over and over from different perspectives. From the perspective of a student, and then as a teacher. It was important to me to do this because I consider myself both a teacher and a student simultaneously. That's what makes teaching so magical.
I shared it with my students and I was delighted that they were familiar with it. They remembered that Ms. Brooks, our school's art teacher, read it with them at the beginning of the school year. (The actual setting of the book is an art classroom).
Since then I have shared it with my KG teaching team, my student intern, our school's reading coach, my husband (who is an elementary school principal), and now you....my blogging community. And I'm not finished sharing yet. It's THAT special.
If you are interested, check out the links on the book's title. It will take you directly to the author, Peter H. Reynold's website.
