Several classroom parents collaborated to share a wonderful Diwali presentation with the Toddler 2 students this week. The students were eager to welcome their visitors and hear about some traditions associated with the Festival of Lights. After the presentation, the children enjoyed painting and decorating their own diyas, beautiful clay lamps used for displaying candles during Diwali. Thanks to the parents for their lovely presentation and hard work!
After their week of tireless pumpkin-scrubbing efforts, the Toddler 2 students were delighted to paint their clean pumpkin with a cheerful rainbow of colors. As this was a true collaborative project, the children had to negotiate how to share the paint, the brushes and the available space on the pumpkin "canvas." The pumpkin artists were exceptionally proud of their hard work!
