Meeting #23:You and Others: Learn How to Plan

You and Others: Learn How to Plan (YaO3)
Discovering You: Discovering Your Creativity (DY2)

Cookies are here! We're having a District Cookie Blitz on Saturday, so we wanted to spend a meeting on cookie selling.

6:30-7:00: Patrol time-Life Plans We gave them forms to fill out for things they want to accomplish in their lives.  (YaO3#3 Worksheet (Word doc)

7:00-7:25: Horseshoe At Horseshoe, we got each girl to tell us one thing from their Life Plans. And then they handed their sheets in to get credit for doing the program work. (YaO3#3)

7:25-7:45: Make up skits on proper and improper selling etiquette. We divided them into groups of three and they had to do 2 short skits--one showing what not to do when cookie selling and one showing the proper way to sell. (DY2#3)

7:45-8:`5: Create a power point or poster to advertise Girl Guide Cookies. (YaO3#2)  Each leader brought a laptop for the girls to work on, plus we had two large pieces of Bristol board and a number of small pieces of poster board. We had the girls draw for if they would be working on the computer or with markers. We also downloaded clip art for the girls to use from the Girl Guides of Canada site

Once everyone was done, they all showed everyone what they had created. The posters looked fantastic and we will be using them at all the locations for the cookie blitz on Saturday. The girls who did the PowerPoints did a great job too.
