Make New Friends! 

We have a program just for your rising kindergartner!  Make New Friends is a 4-Part virtual program series that provides opportunities to girls to strengthen four competencies as they enter kindergarten. This series allows her to connect with the same friends each meeting, as well as Girl Scouts staff who lead her through sessions around language & literacy, cognition, approaches to learning, and social and emotional learning.  Meetings are Thursday's at 6:00 PM.

Participants may attend as individuals with a parent or caregiver.  Parent/caregiver should be present during the program.

What will girls learn? 

Launch into Literacy: Language and Literacy is an important part of kindergarten readiness. Through storytelling and re-telling, your girl can identify major characteristics, setting, and basic story lines which increases her ability to react to words, and understand their meaning. Join us to have story time, and then lead your girl to draw a picture of herself and telling her story afterwards! The goal is to provide parents or caregivers an opportunity to help girls learn how to listen to a story, identify major characters, setting, and plot lines.  

Shoot for the Stars: Girls are little scientists! They are eager to observe and make discoveries about their worlds. An important part of kindergarten is learning how to use their senses to observe the world, discover how things work, and use their new knowledge to solve problems. During this meeting, we will begin exploring the sun, sky, and help girls to develop the ability to use their senses and solve problems.  Soon, girls will be ready to shoot for the stars when they enter kindergarten! The goal is for girls to use their senses to process the world around them, practice reasoning, and problem-solving skills, and show interest by asking questions about what they see and learn in this session.

Spring into Science: Going into kindergarten, girls should be able to show interest in an idea or topic, and ask questions about what they are seeing. In this session, girls will learn by doing as they explore the world around them with curiosity and make new friends! Join us as we help prepare girls for their first big day of kindergarten.  The goal is to help girls use their imaginations to act like animals and practice interacting with other girls, explore new ideas and gain courage to ask questions about what they see, which are essential skills girls will need as they enter kindergarten! 

Dreaming of Success: As a new kindergartner, girls will begin to see themselves as unique individuals who have their own abilities, emotions, and interests.  Join us as we help girls learn about persistence, talk about different emotions, and share their dreams with other girls!
