In first grade, we fill the last weeks right before winter break with fun holiday happenings. We teach the kiddos about different holidays that all use the theme of light. My favorite one is Diwali. I would love to go to India during Diwali. For our project this year, we made rangolis with sidewalk chalk. Each table group of 4-5 kiddos got a circle to fill with their rangoli design. It was a lesson in cooperation, pattern making, and getting as chalk dusty as possible. Too much fun!
