Learn the Alphabet – D is for Dot Dot Dot

 Dot Designs – Create pictures with sticker dots of varying sizes and colors. These dots are often used for price stickers for yard sales. Find them in the office supply aisle in most stores or make your own tiny ones by punching holes in construction paper with a hole punch. A “dot” of glue will fasten the construction paper ones on another sheet of paper to make innumerable designs. The possibilities are endless for this project.

Math Activities – Give students a color pattern to complete – green dot, orange dot, orange dot, green dot . . .What comes next?

Or, give each student a handful (or several) dots in a variety of colors. Count the number of dots in a certain color and graph the results.

Donald Crews’ 1968 book, Ten Black Dots, is a great rhyming story to read to students to discover what can be done with ordinary objects and black dots.

Do you have any other dot ideas? Let me know!

About Cindy A. Johnson

I live in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee. I love to read, work in my flower and vegetable gardens, feed and watch the birds in the yard, sit on the front porch looking at the mountains and go camping. I also like to watch wildlife, including my cats and dog (ha!). I write online articles on a variety of subjects. Check out my book reviews at: http://readerjots.wordpress.com, wonderful nature stuff at http://mynaturenotes.wordpress.com and assorted articles on interesting stuff at http://Esmeowl12.hubpages.com.
