Register for the LitWits workshop on
Anne of Green Gables
by L.M. Montgomery
When the orphanage sends the Cuthberts a pale, redheaded girl instead of a sturdy farm boy, they know she’ll just have to go back. After all, they had decided to adopt because they needed farm help—a strong, sturdy boy—not a girl, and especially not such a dreamy, imaginative, talkative one! But neither Matthew nor his sister Marilla can resist Anne’s charms, and the longer she stays at Green Gables, the less it’s possible to imagine life without her. No one who meets Anne of Green Gables, on Prince Edward Island or on the page, can ever forget her!
It’s like a field trip to Anne of Green Gables!
We’ll spend three sensory, creative hours doing what the characters and author did, and learning all kinds of valuable lessons from them! Kids have a blast opening their LitWits Kits boxes in class, removing each item step by step in a “slow reveal,” as we talk, work, and play our way through the story’s narrative arc.
In this workshop on Anne of Green Gables, kids will immerse in Anne’s delightful imaginary world and learn her lessons, too, as they bedizen slate pencils to “do” vocabulary, send characters into the future, make their own own theme-related slates, write Anne-style compositions, sing morose songs with plenty of drama, and so much more!
When: Thursday, October 22 – your choice of AM (9am-12pm PST) or PM (1pm-4pm PST)
Format: We’ll do this on Zoom, which has been working GREAT so far! Trust us, those three hours just–well, zoom by. And yes the kids will get to stretch, and do some things away from the screen. Our meetings are password-protected, and we’ve taken precautions to prevent intrusions.
Prep: None! About 10 days prior, we’ll ship a LitWits Kit (a box containing the book and workshop supplies) to each registered child; all s/he needs to do is read the book (or listen to it). The confirmation email will include the Zoom link and other details.
Cost: $65 for one child, or $55 if you’re registering more than one in the same session. Cost includes a LitWits Kit of everything needed for your child to participate. The box will contain:
LitWits is an approved vendor for Ocean Grove Charter School.
Cancellation Policy: If you cancel at least 30 days before the workshop, we’ll be happy to issue a full refund. Within 30 days we’ll refund 50%, as we’ve incurred per-child costs by then. Unfortunately, we can no longer offer makeups.
Want to TIY? We’ll make it easy and fun!
The same LitWits Kits of supplies and materials that we send to our workshop kids can be purchased for $39 each, including first class shipping and handling. Your LitWits Kit(s) will ship no later than October 12th; please note that kit orders are nonrefundable. Once we’ve finished teaching, we’ll send you our fine-tuned, kid-tested workshop agenda.
Besides your LitWits Kit(s), you’ll get FREE access to The LitWits Explorer’s Guide for Anne of Green Gables, an $18 value. It’s a private web page packed with everything we did in our live workshop for this book, before the virus sent us online. There are a few things in there we can’t do via Zoom, but you can do them at home. The guide (which includes a printable version) will give you more fun activity ideas, worksheets, discussion starters, prop suggestions, and links to audiovisual and learning resources. We’ll also invite you to a day-after-the-workshop live Q&A on Zoom.
If you enjoy gathering your own supplies (we sure do!) or are keeping an eye on costs (we sure are!) you can just buy access to the guide, of course.
All supplies are included! Fill out the form below, and click REGISTER. Within 24 hours you’ll get a confirmation email with everything else you need to know. This workshop is nonrefundable.
