To help identify supplements for Adult Enrichment Project badge programs, I have reworked the menus.
There are now five menus, as follows:
- Girl Scouts
- Harry Potter
These menus reflect the file structure on Scribd and Google Documents.
I have started uploading the new supplements for Girl Scout Traditions. You can find all of our Girl Scout supplements here.
Printables: World Games has also had supplements added. The badge program is coming out next month.
I like to print the world games out and give them to teachers as a gift. The time of year when the kids can’t go outside to play is here. The printable games give the kids something to break from their daily work and allow them to be indoors for recess / lunch. Some of the games need a print each time they are played. Some are reusable.
All of the badge programs have been moved here from Blogger.
So, I will be spending the weekend checking links and making sure everything works.
Afterwards, I’ll start uploading additional supplements for Girl Scout Traditions and Printables: Girl Scouts.
Watch for new badges coming soon!
I am working on updating our online links, graphics, PDFs, etc.
Scribd is updated as is our supplement list here.
After updating, I’ll get back to releasing / updating badge programs.
**Calling All Girl Scouts and Girl Scout Alumnae**
As I’m working to finish up adding the last of my own materials for Girl Scout Traditions, I’m asking for your help.
I want to add more council-specific and individual-specific flavor to our set of supplements. If you haven’t checked out the resources available so far, go to our Girl Scout Printable collection on Scribd.
Look back over your own years interacting with Girl Scouts. Ask your girls about their own experiences as well. I don’t want current programming ideas. I want things that were done in the past to help add to our collective history.
Specific items I’m looking for include:
Girl Scout Stories
I’d like to create a PDF file specific for each individual who contributes stories of their experiences. I created one for myself to give you an example, SUPP_GS_My Stories_larajla.pdf. Please include your name so the stories can be attributed to you.
I have done nothing on these. While I have my girls’ favorites, I’d love to have requirements / experiences you’ve had with them with your girls. I’m especially interested in the ones based on the geography / location-specific ones in your council.
Realignment was hard on everyone. I’d love to get information on defunct councils, powerful women who helped make their mark in your local councils and service units, etc.
Everyone has a camp they love. Stories of your own, history of the camp, ghost stories shared over the fire, humorous stories of items not packed for camp, anything that could be used to bring the memories of your camp to others. If I can collect enough about a specific camp, I’ll create a PDF for that camp. If not, I’ll work to create a collection of camp stories.
The Web has offered a way for us to share information between councils that we didn’t have before. Previously, we’d share within our council or service unit . . . often mimeographed typewritten pages. I’d love copies of these materials as there are gems that can be shared from craft to programming ideas. These individual insights into the national program help build our history. You’ll see some that I’ve already done from Riverland Council in 1983 in our supplement set. Files start with “SUPP_1983_”.
Okay, so for the hard part!
You can email any of these items to me at larajla__@__gmail.com (remove underscores). I can get to this email address anywhere, so it’s the easiest for me to work with.
You can type up the information and send it in an email. If you want to do an attachment, please save it as a TXT file, which is the most universal text file type.
Also, if you have access to a newer photocopier, some give you the ability to create PDFs to email. You might want to check with your local office supply store to see if they can do this for you. If you choose to do this, make sure you send a copy back to yourself so you have the information for your own records.
P.S. Please forward this to anyone you feel might have information to share.
If you are interested in the Girl Scout supplements for our Girl Scout Traditions badge set, they are being uploaded to Scribd first. You must be logged into Scribd to download the PDFs. It is free, so have fun!
We have a special collection for all Girl Scout supplements, Girl Scout Printables. This will include all items previously released including Girl Scouts: Journeys and the Printables: Girl Scouts which will be uploaded after the traditions set.
If you are looking for the printable games that used to be with the Girl Scout Printables, you can find them at Game Printables. Additional items will be added to this as Printables: World Game and Printables: My Own Games will be added after I’m done with the Girl Scout items.
Have a great week!
UPDATE: All eight of the badge programs have been released for review.
Review should be completed October 16th.
The collections on Scribd and Google Documents for Girl Scout Printables will be updated and house all Girl Scout supplements and printables to help Girl Scout adults when looking for materials to support our 100th anniversary in 2012.
Supplements starting with FOUND are items found on the Web over the last ten years. Supplements starting with SUPP are ones I’ve created to support the badge programs.
Have a great day!
We now have a Facebook Fan Page.
Not sure what to do with it yet, but I’ll get there.
