My name is Kelly Carlson and I have been the Troop Shepherd for IL-0318 for the past year. I chose the The Good Book and Out of the Water patches for our girls to do for the 2019-20 year. Another AHG leader and I would teach and guide discussions with each level for about 20-30 minutes. We created a schedule so that every other week each level would get a lesson. During the off weeks, girls would do a fun game or social activity led by their unit and assistant leaders. If a girl was absent, the info was emailed and a parent would go through it with her daughter. When COVID came, I did the lessons over Zoom.
The lessons were very clear, with good questions for discussion. I found that parents who did the lessons with their daughters had no trouble. The younger girls liked the opening activity too. I hope to use more of the patches and lessons for next year!
