Vaisakhi gifts matched by
DV Network!

This week Sikh Coalition released a fantastic resource called 'Sikh Celebrations: Lessons & Activities for Inclusive Classrooms'. 
The introduction to the workbook explains: 

This resource provides simple and fun ways to create Sikh awareness in elementary school classrooms through sharing about holidays. Whether you are a student, parent or teacher, this guide includes something for you! 
Material is provided for several prominent celebrations namely:

• Vaisakhi (April).

• Bandi Chhor Divas (October/November).

• Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s Gurpurab (some Sikh communities celebrate this in November, and others celebrate it in April, the same time as Vaisakhi).

• Guru Gobind Singh Ji’s Gurpurab (December/January)

Each Sikh holiday comes with 3 ways to use this resource:

1. Greeting cards that can be sent digitally or printed and then given out.

2. Powerpoint show that can be presented in a classroom.

3. Activities and art geared to help children digest the message from the presentation.

The PDF includes a glossary with audio pronunciations of words like 'kesh' and 'khanda' along with a lot of other helpful links and resources regarding bullying and Sikh awareness in America.

Kudos to Sikh Coalition for putting this together, it is a must for Sikh parents and students.
