Hina Matsuri...Happy Girls' Day

March 3rd is Girl's Day.  Here in Hawaii we have a melting pot of cultures and celebrate different cultural traditions throughout the year.  Today, we talked about a celebration in honor of girls and families wishes for the girls in their families.  I read 2 great books to my kindergarten students.

Girl's Day with Yuki-Chan by Tokie Ikeda Ching describes Girl's day traditions in Hawaii.









  Girls' Day / Boys' Day by Minako Ishii shows customs and traditions for Girls' Day and Boys' Day through beautiful photographs.  One side is about Girls' Day and flip the book over and it's about Boys' Day.







We created this cute doll for our art project...




I forgot the mochi at home so they will eat it tomorrow.
