Dot Day!

dot_sec

So I’m jealous of all of the excitement going on with Dot Day and figure it’s time I got my students involved with this! I absolutely love my friend Matthew Winner’s idea of the trading cards (see here and here) and want to use that with my students! I also want to make some Google Hangout connections! I’m planning to share this video to introduce the students to The Dot by Peter Reynolds. Then I’m planning to have my students make three trading cards (one to trade with another student in their class, one to trade with a student in their grade but on the other team, and one to send to our friends that we connect with via Google Hangout). So do you want to hang out with us?

I’m looking for middle school classes to connect with on the following days/times:

Monday, September 16:
7:40-8:00 AM CST
9:20-9:40 AM CST
1:20-1:40 PM CST

Tuesday, September 17:
9:20-9:40 AM CST
1:20-1:40 PM CST

Wednesday, September 18:
7:40-8:00 AM CST
9:20-9:40 AM CST

Thursday, September 19:
7:40-8:00 AM CST
9:20-9:40 AM CST
1:20-1:40 PM CST

I can be somewhat flexible in the times if I need to, so please let me know if you’re interested!! If you’re interested in connecting, you can leave a message in the comments or use this Google Spreadsheet to put in your information so we can connect!

I hope to “see” some of you soon!!

    I think I might be able to do 1 or 2 of your 1:20 pm times (that’s 2:20 EST, right?) If our 5 day schedule coincides, I’m in. Email me so we can see!

    I am late in seeing your request, but would be interested in hanging out this week or on other projects this school year. This is a goal of my to start connecting with schools. Let me know if I can help out. I am a middle specialist in a 7-8 middle school in Minnesota.
