More info on the different activities:

5:30 - 5:45 Opening Circle
- leaders/parents can sit in the circle and participate in the discussion/sing the song (or take photos)

1) OPENING CIRCLE:

Song:

Let's be friends and share a song.
Let's be friends and dance along.
Hold my hand we'll skip and play.
Let's put sparkle in our day.

Promise:

I promise to share and be a friend.

Sharing Beads:

"Did everyone remember to share and be a friend this week?"
 ______ (hopefully they say yes).
"Yay!!  Here's the bead you've earned for being such terrific Sparks this week" 

Crystal:

"Who had Crystal last week?"
"Would you like to share your drawing with us?"

Draw the next name and put Crystal with the scrapbook bag of the girl who's to take her home.

- hand out the Remembrance Day badge (brief discussion about what Remembrance Day is)
- ask girls if they can think of any other community helpers (police, fire, ambulance)
- sing the Dial 9-1-1 song

the Dial 9-1-1 song goes to the tune of "What shall we do with a drunken sailor"

What do we do if there is trouble,
What do we do if there is trouble,
What do we do if there is trouble,
We dial 9-1-1!

What do we do if there's a fire,
What do we do if there's a fire,
What do we do if there's a fire,
We dial 9-1-1!

What do we do if there's a robber,
What do we do if there's a robber,
What do we do if there's a robber,
We dial 9-1-1!

What do we do if someone's injured,
What do we do if someone's injured,
What do we do if someone's injured,
We dial 9-1-1!

We know what to do if there's a problem,
We know what to do if there's a problem,
We know what to do if there's a problem,
We dial 9-1-1!

5:45 - 5:55 Remembrance Day craft
- leaders/parents need to make sure the girls print their names on the back and to answer raised hands (questions)
- Heart Poppy paper craft to put in scrapbook

5:55 - 6:05 Fire fighter tag
- leaders/parents to tidy up while the girls play
- leaders/parents to put scrapbooks back in bags (I took about 1/2 of them home with me last week)
- leaders/parents to put sharing beads on the bags
- just regular "frozen tag"...  The person who is "it" is the Fire fighter and the other girls are the fire
- if someone is touched by the fire fighter, that means they've been put out and they have to stand still.
- If another "fire" touches them they can run around again
- Every couple of minutes, we'll change who is "it"
- first we'll have one fire fighter, then two, then three, etc and see how many fire fighters we need to put all the fires out

- I made water and fire "pom poms" by taping lengths of blue/white streamers together and lengths of red/orange streamers together.  The firefighters held the blue/white and the "fires" held the red/orange

6:05 - 6:15 Who stole the cookie from the cookie jar
- leaders/parents to continue with beads and badges
- introduction to "girl guide cookies"
- the "police man" will have to guess who stole the cookie from the cookie jar

6:15 - 6:25 Snack and Closing Circle
- we'll crack open two boxes of girl guide cookies and let the girls each have one
(since our police did such a good job of solving the "who stole the cookie from the cookie jar" crime)
- we'll remind the girls that next week we're going to have lots of time for share and tell so bring something to show at circle time!

Twinkle twinkle little spark,
Time to go, it's getting dark.
To your pillow, to your bed,
Time to rest your sleepy head.
Twinkle twinkle little spark,
Time to go, it's getting dark.
