Different name, same resource! Do you know about the free, fantastic resources on our website – the resources formally known as “Programming Pages”? Ta da! They have a new name: “Intergenerational Recipes for Success”! This new name reflects what we set out to do by creating these tools; instead of being a set “program,” we see them more as maps or guides to intergenerational success! Whether you’re looking for an intergenerational activity for you and a family member or for a more structured setting, such as a classroom, take a peek at our 19 (and counting!) IG Recipes for Success. From how-to guides to implementing a One Book, One Community initiative to suggestions for an intergenerational trip to an art museum to comprehensive plans and tips for different holidays, these IG Recipes will set the stage for fun, effective and educational interactions.
Recent additions include activities for Presidents’ Day that can be used throughout the year (what better time than an election year to learn about the American Presidency!) and a guide to four games that can be played with Bridges Together Grand Conversation Cards. Our newest IG Recipe for Success celebrates Women’s History Month with an in-depth look at Rosie the Riveter and the role of women in World War II using the picture book Rosie Revere, Engineer.
Take a look! And continue to watch this space — we create and publish at least one new Recipe per month!
