Doherty Celebrates Dot Day

First- through fifth-grade students explored creativity and digital art on International Dot Day in mid-September. The day stemmed from Peter Reynold’s children’s book, “The Dot,” about creativity in the classroom. Doherty students gathered in the library for STEAM activities related to the book with librarian Jo Schnirring and art teacher Kacey Watkins. Unit I students made augmented reality musical dots, Unit II students made stop motion clay dots, and Unit III students made animated dots, all through applications on their iPads, Schnirring said. Throughout the week all students read the book and decorated the Doherty Campus with colorful and imaginative dots.
