Understand and appreciate this diverse culture

The value we’ll be studying is frugality, which means to use all our resources wisely.

For science we’ll learn what makes the wind blow.

Outside, we’ll make Diwali floor designs.

The songs we’ll be singing are Let’s Go Fly a Kite, Mr. Sun, Oh What a Beautiful Morning, You Are My Sunshine, and Tomorrow.

For creative dramatics, we’ll dance to East Indian music.

Our art activities are mehndi, floating Diwali lamps, Indian spice books, and pinwheels.

For motor development, we’ll work on coordination with forward rolls, pivoting, side-to-side hops, and leaping. For flexibility, we’ll practice yoga poses.
