🎨 Encourage Creativity With this Dot Day Bulletin Board 


This bulletin board idea will encourage students to get creative on International Dot Day. The dot templates will have your students thinking outside the box (or circle), and using their imaginations to make something simple into a creative masterpiece. 

Encourage your students to use different visual art elements such as color, line, pattern, tone, shape, and space to fill in the sections of the circle!

International Dot Day is an international holiday celebrated by both children and adults. Dot Day is a day to connect, collaborate, and create.
