Dot - Whole Resilience Day
As part of our resilience day each teacher shared the book: The Dot
The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds:
The Dot is a beautiful story about a girl named Vashti who is encouraged by her teacher to take a risk. Vashti does not believe she can draw. She is filled with self-doubt until her teacher gently persuades her to, “just make a mark and see where it takes you.” This inspirational story shows how one reluctant learner gains self-esteem with just one dot. Once Vashti sees her artwork signed and framed, she is inspired to experiment more with dots. The simple support of her teacher gives Vashti the confidence to take risks, to be resilient and persevere in order to grow.
Each class than took on an art project that required resilience and perseverance.
