Colette Taillon's students at Hammond Westside Montessori are Ready for International Dot Day and it never looked so Emoji!!
Students drew a sketch of an emoji on blank paper and then made it come to life by creating it out of construction paper. The children's emojis had to have some character traits that described themselves. Today the kids will write a descriptive paragraph why their emoji looks the way it looks. Several more International Dot Day activites will take place in the classroom. These students will learn about "Making their Mark" on the world, which is the theme of Dot Day.
