stART~Ten Black Dots

 

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.  I have also included a list of all the blogs that participate in stART.

This week we read Ten Black Dots, by Donald Crews.  Emily enjoyed reading this book at school and at home.  This is a great picture book that shows the many different things that different amounts of black dots can become.  The rhyming text is fun to read and the girls loved seeing all of the different things that the dots became on each page.

To go along with this book Emily picked a number of black dots and then imagined what they could be.  Then she glued the black dots on the paper and used them as part of her picture.IMG_2018

Emily decided that four black dots can be the wheels on a car.

Oh I love this book and your idea to go along with it. I am pinning this right now on Pinterest so that I don't forget about it.
Thanks for hosting this fun party. I just linked up our fun Mini Book we made to go along with the book 10 Apples Up On Top!.
Take care,
Shauna
