Children from EtonHouse Pre-School at 215 Upper Bukit Timah celebrated International Dot Day, a global celebration of creativity, courage and collaboration. The event came about when a teacher by the name of Terry Shay introduced his classroom to Peter H. Reynolds’ book “The Dot” on September 15, 2009. Since then, it has become a worldwide celebration of creativity and visualisation.
Children from the K1B class at EtonHouse at 215 Upper Bukit Timah explored 'abstraction' through creative expressions while recognising important characters and high-frequency words. The provocation pages on 'dot day' provided them with writing practice, vocabulary and spoken language development by learning stroke order and practising writing skills for significant and high-frequency characters. Creative art offers the opportunity to document learning and for children to work both independently and collaboratively. The outcome could be a large display, a performance or a book; authentic ways to document and assess children's learning while achieving their learning goals at the same time.
