Activity Day for Girls

I was looking for a great topic for today's class when my mom said, "Why don't you teach them how to write thank you notes?  It's the right time of year for that."  Perfect.

I found this article about writing thank yous (there's an unneccessary naughty word in it) and decided to do the activity day this way:

  • girls play outside for about 5-10 minutes
  • introduce the topic
  • give the girls paper and pencils to write down the 6 steps outlined in the article as I read and focus their attention on the 6 steps
  • give them cardstock already cut in half to each decorate and write a thank you card (may be done with blanks left in it to be completed at home)
  • snacks
  • play games if time is left
It was a low-key and successful Activity Day.
