Today we read Peter H. Reynolds book The Dot. Upon completing the book, we discussed how Vashti wasn't being brave with her art to start. When she took a risk to be brave she found out that she could be good at art.
I had my students thinking about which subjects in 1st grade might be hard for them. They had to pick one subject they thought they weren't good at. Then they used this PDF to create their own "dot."
After each student's "dot" was completed, they used the colAR Mix App to make their 2D dot come to life in 3D. The app allows you to snap a screen shot of your 3D "dot." All the students took a screenshot of their "dots." We then used Animoto to create a short video of our "dots" to be brave with this year.
