Last week we learned about the Hindu holiday Diwali. This holiday was celebrated earlier this fall. We made diyas, rangoli and we created a fireworks page in our holiday book. The students enjoyed learning about this holiday. We are making connections with similarities among the different holidays celebrated by our students. All these special items will go home in the big snowman goody bags the students made. We will send the bags home some time next week (@ December 21st or 22nd).
