Happy Diwali (today is the 5th and final day of Diwali)

First Graders are learning about Diwali, the “Festival of Lights”.  We learned that this festival celebrates the start of a New Year for Hindus living in India and around the world. We looked at and discussed the significance of the lights.  During the five-day celebration, small clay lamps, also known as Diyas, are filled with oil and lit to signify the triumph of light over darkness or good over evil. We are celebrating Diwali by creating our own Diyas pinch pots. First graders enjoyed working with clay, and using tools to create textures and designs. They are excited to glaze their pinch pots.
