Girls Club Kensington Add to Our Global Poem for Change


As you may know by now, we at LitWorld are celebrating Poetry Month! We are using Naomie Shihab Nye's Line to get started: I send my words out into the air/Listening for yours from everywhere. The Girls Club at Kensington each added their own lines to make a collective contribution to our Global Poem for Change!

These words send peace 
Love and care
It also flows
Through the air 
The sky is beautiful 
Sometimes blue or gray
No matter what color it is 
Like our words, it will always be everywhere
These words are yours
These words are mine
These words are for everyone
No one is alone and everyone is a part of this rhyme
Words can express many things
Tick, Tock the bells are going to ring
So happy that I'm loved
I feel like a dove
My words express my heart
It also can be used to express my art
Inspiration comes from the world
Sometimes it takes so long
But I will wait here
Patiently for the words to come

LitWorld Girls Club at Kensington Celebrate World Read Aloud Day

The LitWorld Girls Club at the Kensington School celebrated World Read Aloud Day by taking time out of their lunch period to read to the younger Kindergarten students! The 4th and 5th grade girls came in to read to their younger peers, reading books like Madeline and Swimmy. The bubbly kindergarteners welcomed in the Girls with enthusiasm and excitement, celebrating the power of reading out loud with joy and a lot of smiling faces!


Happy Valentines Day All Girls Clubs from P.S. 179

The girls at The Kensington School in Brooklyn had the pleasure of having Girls Club on Valentines Day!!!



Ruby the facilitator of the group decided to read the book Ruby Valentine Saves the Day by Laurie B. Friedman.

This book had her name in it, but also spoke about how we do not need flowers, candy and presents to appreciate Valentine's day. All we need are warm friends and family around us!!! 














With love in the air, the girls decided to write valentines day cards to all the girls in Girls Clubs around the world...

Last week, our vibrant girls club from the Kensington School was interviewed by Brooklyn News Outlet, News 12, and were featured on television! The girls did a remarkable job being interviewed, and made us proud as they poised themselves on camera as the well-spoken young ladies that they are. Our executive director Pam Allyn, and staff members Jen Estrada and Ruby Veridiano joined the girls in their first television debut, making for a fun and exciting school day. Thank you to reporter Alecia Reid, for coming out to the Kensington School and interviewing our young ladies!
