A new Girls LitClub was officially launched at Mill Street Loft in Poughkeepsie, NY!
To kick off our time together, the girls collaged their notebooks with pictures, words and phrases that represent who they are. An outward expression of their hearts.
Together we read Dr. Seuss’s Oh the Places You’ll Go. The girls were asked to reflect on past or present experiences in which they have found a path out of a negative situation. They looked at landscapes and created their own fantasy landscape based on the illustrations from the book. Students focused on creating landscapes that show a negative situation in their lives and a creative path which has lead them to a positive place.
So far the club has been so much fun, the girls are really opening up to us and each other. We can't wait to spend the year growing, creating, and learning together!
