On the 5th of September LitClub Niharika members had an exciting session. Firstly, we started the meeting with warm greetings and then sang ‘The Hello Song’. We started off with a check-in question, ‘What is your best memory in LitClub?’ They answered with their memories of the times when they celebrated Read Aloud Day, made visit to a library or did a video shooting on their strengths.
After our greetings, we got to work on a team activity
We then moved on to a community building activity. For this part of the program, we planned to do some literacy activities as International Literacy Day was celebrated on 8th September). I shared some of my ideas with them and showed them some of the pictures on my cell phone that might be helpful in conducting the activities. We selected 3 of the pictures and started working on it in 3 different groups. One with “International Literacy Day “ along with many valuable quotes written in it another with the game of literacy snake and ladder and the last one with the message that kids who read always succeed.
Girls working in groups
The girls were very excited to draw the pictures and fill the chart papers with literacy slogans, their ideas and thoughts in a very colorful way. This activity proved to be a successful one. The girls used their imagination and creativity to draw this picture and wrote down their ideas. This carried a very important message that they wanted to give to other people in this world.
A group showing their great work
Another group showing their great work
All the girls showed much excitement and with their help we were able to complete all 3 charts. This team activity took more time than planned so we couldn’t manage to do Read Aloud in this session. But we were happy with what we were able to do in the day, as the efforts of all the girls resulted with beautiful, creative arts accompanied by their satisfied faces.
It is always great to see the girls smile and be happy with their creative work
After completing the day’s projects, we sat down in a circle, praised each other for the wonderful work we had done and then sang ‘The Farewell Song’ with great rejoice.
