We started class by putting the children into groups. These groups will be for the group quizzes, and will be used throughout the year. The children decided their group names by picking states of India, and finding an adjective that started with the same letter as the state. For example, Magnificent Maharashtra. Next, we discussed the topic of the Dasa Avatars of Vishnu. We surveyed the class on which, if any, avatars they knew. Then we read and discussed the stories of the Matsya, Kurma, and Varaha avatars. The children ended their day with Bhajans and Yoga.
