Playing Outside

We had a special visitor today! She taught us all about Sankranti!

The festival of Sankranki, which falls on January 14th, marks the end of a long winter and the beginning of spring.  Sankranti is celebrated in India.  An important part of the festival is flying kites.  
We learned in India they dress up cows, a sacred animal, during celebrations.
We listened to Indian music and danced around the class.
They fly colorful kites during Sankranti.

Thank so much for sharing your Indian culture with us!  

Mrs. Rodgers read a book that we could act out!
