Connecting our own dots...

We started our Circle Study this year with a simple activity that was inspired by Hands On: as we grow's Beginner Connect the Dots. When I saw that post, I immediately thought of our Circle, Spots and Polka Dots unit. What a fantastic idea for younger kids to connect the dots however they would like.  For our purposes, I added even more freedom. The children created their own dots and then connected them too. Their age ranges and artistic styles resulted in a lot of different types of art. Some of their artwork even ended up resembling that of Seurat's pointillism, but we'll save those details for another post.
