As of now here are the pictures πŸ™‚ (sorry i just have 5 minutes to write this post, as my lil toddler will be up any minute πŸ˜‰ )

Here is a look at our shelf. I used some flags and posters to create the India-theme:

shelf

First tray was an introduction to our tri-color national flag, along with some geographical study. I created a little Asia continent printable with India on it. We also studied the phonic sound “I” of India.

Later we did our favorite scooping / pouring work using rice and two other lentils. This gelled with the tri-color of the Flag πŸ™‚

Then we studied about famous freedom fighters of India along with some special national attributes.
