Your kids were excited and looking forward to the Diya project.  We started the day talking about Baby Krishna, and his two parents, his birth parents and godparents who raised him, baby Krishna’s pranks and why he is called “ Makhan Chor in Gokul

                                  We tried balancing a paper in our little finger but couldn't do it while young Krishna to protect  people of Gokul from Indra’s wrath, when he sent torrential rains.  Krishna got the Govardhan mountain and balanced it in his little finger We also learnt about his uncle Kansa, who turned evil when he learnt Krishna was born to kill him.  

                              We reinforced their learning by playing a short video on Krishna and  how he protected his people from Indra’s wrath. 

The later part of the day was spent in creating and decorating Diya’s.  You must have seen their creativity when they brought back their diya home. Some parents had sent money through their children for this project  This money will go towards supporting a blind school. Those who did not bring it last class may send it next week. Thank you all for your contribution to this project and we believe the children enjoyed the diya making.
