Product Description

The LitWits Kit for CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY by Roald Dahl - LITWITS - kit montage - project activity lesson ideasThe LitWits Kit for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl

This “experience kit” is 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 Kits are virtual products, but they’re packed with downloadables — templates, activity aids, academic handouts, and more. Because our kits live online, we can link you to useful info and audiovisuals. And you’ll always have the very latest updates!

The LitWits Kit for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory 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

Here are a few options for classroom teachers and homeschoolers. Decide what works best for your classroom or family!

Pull projects, activities, and handouts as needed to stimulate interest, reinforce a concept, or take a break from reading.

Use a suggested prop to trigger a conversation. Ask your kids if they know what the item is, and why it’s significant in the story. You might discover a theme together!

Casually bring up a question from a handout at recess or over dinner, and let the discussion grow from there. Take advantage of tangential learning opportunities!

Do the projects and activities as the book is being read, or after as a reward.

Use one or more prop ideas to support specific learning goals, such as spelling or social studies.

Have your kids research a particular prop in more depth – learn its history and usage, and write a report.

Enjoy the arts and crafts projects as a family or in an after-care group.

Set up the book display in the classroom or living room, and invite your kids to contribute their own story-related items each day.

    What joyful fun it is to read a childhood favorite with my kids and experience the magic of Mr Wonka’s factory anew.
    We gathered a few friends together to try our hand at inventing and marketing a new candy creation (Kit Activity, “Sweet Innovations”).
    While we shared our tasty treats, we talked about the characters with their exaggerated faults and pondered the true gifts of life. Charlie didn’t have much but he had these – a loving family and a marvelous sense of wonder.
    This kit makes reading a book together fun; it makes teaching a book a breeze (a breeze scented by chocolate and fun!)
