Do A Dot Days

We first encountered Do A Dot markers when I bought Confessions of A Homeschooler's Letter of the Week curriculum. My kids both loved them and they've become a fun staple in our weekly school curriculum. They're basically just kid sized Bingo markers. When we first started using Letter of the Week we actually did use Bingo markers because I didn't have any idea where to get Do a Dots. I've since found out that you can get them lots of places - Do A Dot, Rainbow Resource Center and, to name a few.

They can get a little messy so I'd suggest either wearing play clothes, using a smock, putting newspaper down and/or keeping wipes handy.

The following are resources I've bookmarked to use or have used with our Do A Dots:

~ Simply Montessori - Do a Dot Marker Activities and Free Printables
~ DLTK - Bingo Dauber Pages
~ Making Learning Fun - Dot A Dot Mini Marker Pages and Bingo Marker Pages
~ Homeschool Creations - Letters A-M and Letters N-Z
~ My Montessori Journey - Paper Plate Fish Craft
~ Tot School - Uppercase Letters and Lowercase Letters (Also a Father's Day card craft - could be used for any kind of holiday!)
~ Making Friends - Dot Art pages
~ Let's Explore - Fun With Dot Markers (some very cute ideas)
~ Dot A Dot Art - Activity Books (to purchase)
~ You can even make your own markers/daubers as seen on Counting Coconut's blog post here.

If markers aren't your thing or you run out of ink you can use these pages and ideas in other ways too - fill in the circles with cereal, mini-marshmallows, oyster crackers or whatever other mini snack your kiddos like. Using stickers or gluing on pom poms or confetti work too - but I'd suggest not eating them! :)
