We are excited to start our 2nd year of Girls LitClub in Oelwein, Iowa.
The after school program is a series of reading, creating and writing workshops for girls to explore their extraordinary strengths and develop leadership skills.
Mrs. Duff, Mrs. Leo and Mrs. Danielson along with a select group of 6th grade girls will meet every Thursday after school during second semester. Opportunities for girls to read and write in ways that help them explore their sense of self and create supportive social networks are provided. Snacks along with smiles and stories are shared.
Our 1st meeting had 9 students and 3 adults singing, praising and creating. It’s Raining Cupcakes by Lisa Schroder will be our chapter book read aloud every meeting. Reading the poem, “The Invitation” by Shell Silverstein made everyone feel welcome. Personal journals were decorated and silly names created. The girls are going to work on planning the LitWorld Read Aloud Day activities for the community in the next few weeks.
