Shivali became our teacher on Thursday last week and prepared a lesson about Diwali. She shared a slideshow with us all about the history and meaning of Diwali, told us about her family traditions and taught us how to write "Happy Diwali Room 11" in Hindi. We also read a book about Diwali and created Rangoli patterns outside on the concrete. You can see some photos of our Rangoli patterns below.
Thank you 'Miss Shivali', for sharing a bit of yourself and your culture with us all! We learnt a lot about Diwali from you this week.
