stART ~ The Dot

Welcome to stART! I hope that you will enjoy our story and art project and maybe even share your own too. All I ask is that you link back to A Mommy’s Adventures somewhere in your post by either adding my button or a text link, so that others can see all the other great projects that everyone shares too! The linky will be open all week.  Be sure to stop by and visit the different links…every week there are so many different and fun book and craft ideas!

Check out the  stART tab in my navigation bar where you can find our past stART projects.  All the books that we have read and did a stART project for are listed in alphabetical order.

This week we read The Dot, by Peter H. Reynolds.  This is a wonderful story about a little girl that thinks that she is not very good at art.  Her art teacher helps her realize what a great artist she is.  I really liked this book, because it reminded me of how Emily feels about her artistic abilities at times.

Of course after reading this book Emily was able to create her own Dot.  Emily used a paper plate and some watercolors for hers and I love how it came out!

We read that book a couple of months ago and loved it. We'll have to check it out again and do a project with it.

Thanks for hosting.
