Week 2 Theme - #dayofthegirl
"My Voice, Our Equal Future.
Every year on 11 October, the International Day of the Girl, UNICEF launches an annual campaign with girls to amplify their voices and stand up for their rights. This year, under the theme, “My voice, our equal future”, let’s seize the opportunity to reimagine a better world inspired by adolescent girls – energized and recognized, counted and invested in. This week we hone in on SDG 5 – Gender Equality.
Listen to the story ‘Pink is for Boys’ found below in the Buncee.
Create your own or class book or buncee story just like this week’s read aloud. You might even like to use https://app.bookcreator.com and upload to Wakelet. The Global Write team can’t wait to see your ideas of things girls and boys can play with matching the colours. We also can’t wait to see the creativity of the books created from the writing prompt this week.
Prompt: Finish these sentences …
Watch below the video from CARE (http://my.care.org)
CARE works around the globe to save lives, defeat poverty and achieve social justice.
After watching the video and reading the meaning behind this week’s theme of International Day of the Girl it is time to write. Your challenge is to use the 5 words provided to write a piece of writing that links to the theme. It can be a story, descriptive piece, a poem, a letter (Dear Girls….), any style of writing. Do not exceed 150 words.
Your prompt: future girl/s recognized voice equal
All of these 5 words must be in your writing piece this week. Think about how your piece of writing could amplify the voices and stand up for girls all over the world. You may choose to make a video like the feature video from CARE to share your message. The Global Write team will look forward to seeing the creativity writers show, when sharing how important Gender Equality is in our world. Lets share the hashtag #dayofthegirl
You will notice that the prompts have no age category linked to them this week. There should be no boundary to what prompt teachers or learners choose to use. There is a Simple and Advanced prompt and it is by choice which one is chosen for learners to write with.
We hope you enjoy this weeks prompts and continue to support the achievement of SDG 5 – Gender Equality .
