21:46 - Karen (McTeach)

22:35 - Donna Macdonald
Creativity happens every day.

22:48 - Laurie (@RentonL)

23:47 - Bill, the Dot Connector

23:50 - Gupteswar Rao
Hi.. sorrry my delay and interruption... am not getting the audio...

23:53 - Joan Young (@flourishingkids)
Oh..that's a cool idea Laurie

23:57 - Bill, the Dot Connector
famlilies would be terrific

24:04 - Peggy George
that number is changing every day :-)

24:12 - Joan Young (@flourishingkids)
Maybe I will have a canvas for parents to do a dot on Back to school Night

24:13 - Laurie (@RentonL)
Like during "meet the teacher" night ...

24:15 - Andrea Keller
we are inviting parents and families join us on Saturday :)

24:21 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)

24:22 - Leah Montano

24:29 - Leah Montano
Hello Paula

24:30 - Joan Young (@flourishingkids)
Yes, Paula :-) great idea

24:41 - Kim Caise
Gupteswar click on the red starburst at the top and set your audio properties using the audio setup wizard

24:41 - Peggy George
@gupteswar you seem to be having a bandwidth problem which may be causing audio problem

24:42 - Lorna Costantini
if you are having difficulty hearing pls run the audio setup wizard

24:43 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
Hi Leah.

24:55 - Andrea Keller
the guide is FANTASTIC!

25:02 - Joan Young (@flourishingkids)
We Skyped with Shannon Miller this week..we are making a flipsnack book with Skitch pictures from her 4th graders and mine

25:15 - Andrea Keller

25:29 - Joan Young (@flourishingkids)

25:46 - Kim Caise livebinder link

26:19 - Peggy George
cats are always fun in our sessions!

26:25 - Peggy George
and they can type too...

27:07 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
How about if we have our older students read book to a younger class and then have them make their dots?

27:11 - Peggy George (Karen McMillan-McTeach on Twitter-seventh grade teacher at Christ the King Catholic School in Northern California)

27:19 - Joan Young (@flourishingkids)
we did that last year Paula with our reading buddies

27:24 - Peggy George
love that idea @Paula!

27:38 - Andrea Keller
Great idea Paula!

27:44 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
Joan, I'm going to buddy with one of our first grades and do that.

27:44 - Peggy George (Peter Reynolds: Dot Club Connect on Twitter)

27:51 - Lorna Costantini
wow using your imagination!

27:51 - Laurie (@RentonL)

28:01 - Peggy George
keep going

28:04 - Barb Tennyson
I so agree...

28:05 - @shamblesguru
Because it is not expected .... de-educated

28:14 - Shannon
@Joan Arrived late to session, but am intrigued about the idea of "parking lot for mistakes". Can someone explain?...

28:26 - Terry Shay

28:29 - Peggy George
students really love sharing this day with other students!

28:30 - Terry Shay
Parking lot for mistakes

28:30 - Joan Young (@flourishingkids)
Oh Terry talked about that I think unless I heard wrong

28:46 -
i am hearing you come in and out

29:01 - @shamblesguru
Drat that Cat :-)

29:19 - Leah Montano
Hello Peggy

29:39 - @shamblesguru
umm Cat Dot Day Theme

29:41 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
50 ideas in 10 minutes - great challenge.

29:51 - Joan Young (@flourishingkids)
Love the idea of students brainstorming Dot Day Ideas

29:54 - Peggy George
teachers make such a difference when they let their students know they believe in them!

30:13 - Joan Young (@flourishingkids)
Great modeling for brainstorming for the rest of the year and stopping censoring

30:20 - Joan Young (@flourishingkids)
hahaha.. food ideas

30:26 - Peggy George
love that point!!! how can we make this happen instead of "we can't"

30:31 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
My would be food based too.

30:34 - Terry Shay
I love Karen and her enthusiasm and passion.

30:35 - Peggy George
food--the universal language :-)

30:39 -
karen put watercolor paint on your cat's paws...cover the table with white paper...non toxic of course..and have her walk around..creating her own dots!

30:41 - Annette Whitby
What a profound exercise to encourage students to be aware of censoring and how to promote creative thinking.

30:48 - Joan Young (@flourishingkids)
Yes, Terry, me too. Karen is so passionate and creative.

30:56 - Peggy George
along with music... universal language! kids love to create rap! how about a DOT rap?

31:03 - Laurie (@RentonL)
Yes - I find many of my Gr 3s are even afraid to take a risk ... to throw it out there - LOVE "how" can we make it happen ... instead of "we can't"!

31:05 - Joan Young (@flourishingkids)
Ooh..great idea rap!

31:08 - stidmama
This discussion is giving me some great ideas for subbing. Particularly at this time of year! AND its giving me support for encouraging kids to take (small) risks.

31:20 - Terry Shay
YAY! Dot Day Anthem!

31:20 - missyk #3
What actually is dot day- not following!

31:40 - Terry Shay
Dot Day is a day for kids to be creative and make dots

31:57 - Peggy George
Angela Maiers did a fantastic TEDx talk on #youmatter and recognizing the genious is everyone around you. Be sure to listen to it and share it with your students.

33:46 - Lorraine Leo

33:48 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)

36:33 - Peggy George (International Dot Day on Skype in the Classroom)

36:54 - Peggy George

36:56 - Joan Young (@flourishingkids)
Ooh.. I love that Peggy..going to have students submit a dot to that project..thank you

37:27 - Norman

37:35 - Peggy George
just helping kids understand that they all are "making their mark" every day is such an important concept to teach!

37:51 - Peggy George
welcome to all of you just joining us!

38:23 - Peggy George (FableVision Learning free resources-sign up for the newsletter for more free resources)

39:06 - Peggy George
this idea gives me goosebumps! asking kids to set goals and then revisit them at the end of the year and connecting it to Make Your Mark :-)

39:27 - Joan Young (@flourishingkids)
Yes such great reflection opportunity

39:36 - Peggy George
Make Your Mark awards :-) cool!

39:43 - Peggy George
that's an award everyone can earn!

39:47 -
We have a back to school night..perhaps an activity for the parents to do ..and their kids can see it hung up????

39:48 - Terry Shay
Make You Mark awards!! LOVE

40:18 - Joan Young (@flourishingkids)
Across the curriculum great!

40:25 - @teachteKBeck(Kristen)
We are doing "Rachel's Challenge" one of the Columbine victims who had drawn her hands in her journal and wrote: "These hands will touch thousands if not millions of people" Her parents found it in her room after she died. My kids could do hand prints made of dots and think about how their hands will touch others!

40:28 - Shannon
Make Your Mark... new twist on the Responsive Classroom idea of "Hopes and Dreams".

40:33 - Lorraine Leo
I was wondering if there is a kid-friendly space where the children can see what others have created.

40:38 - Peggy George
"how many dots can you fit on the head of a pin?" :-)

40:41 - Andrea Keller
Thanks Maryann! I LOVE your site!

40:42 - Joan Young (@flourishingkids)

The elementary art adminstration wrote I and drew a heart and wrote our school name .. then of course, she signed it!

50:03 - Bill, the Dot Connector

50:12 - Peggy George
such a good strategy @Edie! Administrators are busy people and if you can make it easy for them to get involved, they will :-)

50:13 - Andrea Keller
yep :)

50:29 - Bill, the Dot Connector
Please come by.........

50:35 - Shannon

@ Peggy that's a good idea; connecting kids with authors/illustratiors through their artwork; to keep the conversation going beyond dot day

53:30 - Andrea Keller
I love the dice idea!

53:52 - Parvana
