We immediately dove into enrichment modules such
as Health and Wellness and Gardening. The hands on activities really let the
girls explore their creativity and allow them to get to know each other even more.
As the week continued, the girls were also able to enjoy other activities such
as Drama, Art, and Science. Creating heart maps in art, learning about plants
and nature in science, and participating in fun games and activities in drama
not only brought the girls closer together, but also the TA's. During break and
game, time the girls enjoyed playing games they had learned in drama- especially
Jell-O and Charades.
As Friday rolled around, the girls were eager
for water play. Ending the week with fun in the sun and water games, the girls
had a blast with the TA's this Friday. Fun relays and other water games brought
out a whole new spirit in the girls! By the time 3:00pm rolled around, everyone
was tired and ready for the weekend. Although the weekend was here, the girls
were sad to part until Monday because as one of girls put it, "It was one of
the best weeks ever."
I cannot wait for the rest of the summer, especially since the first week was this exciting! The girls are looking forward to their fieldtrips next week to the Tech Museum and the Cantor Arts Museum-as are the TA's!
