Anne of Green Gables

(1 customer review)


About the story

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!

About the LitWits Explorer’s Guide

Experience Anne of Green Gables with your students in fun, meaningful ways! Your kids can immerse in Anne’s delightful imaginary world and learn her lessons, too, as they bedizen slate pencils to “do” vocabulary, layer story symbols as art, send characters into the future, make their own own theme-related slates, write Anne-style compositions, sing morose songs with plenty of drama, smell stinky cake, and so much more!

LitWits Explorer’s Guides are private web pages that include creative and academic downloadables. This lesson planning resource is ideal for ages 8-12, but it’s highly adaptable. Scroll down to get more details and a free idea with template.



Product Description

The LitWits Kit for ANNE OF GREEN GABLES by L.M. Montgomery - LITWITS The LitWits Explorer’s Guide for Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery

Everything in this “experience guide” comes from our unique sensory workshop on Anne of Green Gables.  It’s packed with hands-on ways to get into the characters’ shoes. When kids see, feel, hear, taste, smell, and DO what the characters did, they understand more. Better yet, they want to read more.

LitWits Explorer’s Guides are web pages packed with downloadables — templates, activity aids, academic handouts, and more. (Here’s a sample, for a different book.) Because our guides live online, we can link you to useful info and audiovisuals. And you’ll always have the very latest updates!

The LitWits Explorer’s Guide for Anne of Green Gables includes:

  • sensory prop suggestions, with photos
  • creative project and activity ideas, with photos
  • printable templates, excerpts, and activity prompts
  • takeaway topics, to fuel meaningful conversations
  • printable handouts for creative writing, the narrative arc, setting, and more
  • research and audiovisual links, for one-stop prep and homework help
  • great quotes from the book, where copyright allows

This guide is adaptable to a wide range of ages. (See the Ways to Use tab for classroom and homeschool uses.) We find 8-12-year-olds consistently “ready to LitWit,” but you know best what your kids are ready for, interested in, and capable of.

    I really like this unit and am excited to incorporate it into my theme.
    The only problem I have with this unit is I can’t find the print icon like the other units that I have purchased.
    If anyone knows where to find it please let me know.

      Hi Heidi – We’re so glad you reached out about the missing PDF! It’s back where it should be now. Please let us know how it goes – we love hearing how our teacher friends put their own spin on our work!

      Happy reading,
      Becky and Jenny
