I am absolutely in LOVE with your site and your concepts! Bought [The LitWits Kit for The Witch of Blackbird Pond] to use in my classroom. [ ... ] will definitely be using it all next year (especially blueberry cake!) with my 5th graders. I don’t teach Little House in the Big Woods (I do LHotPrairie), but the Chopped concept is RIGHT up my alley!! Just wanted to say thanks for all you do!
I truly appreciate LitWits Kits! We are so excited! It's exactly what we have been looking for!
I LOVE the hands-on, sensory aspect of the kits, and how easy it is to pull out the projects or other parts I need in a particular week.
This is such a great idea! I’m very impressed with the depth of detail and research that goes into LitWits Kits.
Finally, literature curriculum that is hands-on and focused on learning through doing! I often stay away from study guides or worksheet-based guides because they take all the fun out of reading for the kids. This LitWits Kit puts the fun back into reading and its hands-on suggestions help bring the book to life.
When I first opened the kit, I thought…WOW. It’s so comprehensive and beautiful! It is much more involved and thorough than I ever would have imagined. It is visually interesting and appealing. . . there are SO many ideas for bringing this book to life! It inspired me to look at our other books and really pick apart how I could implement some ideas like this.
Iris had an amazing time again!! She loved it!! LitWits is such a wonderful experience and we're so thankful for that awesome opportunity. I wish I could have had a LitWits workshop as a child!
We are so thankful to you for offering a wonderful, enriching year of fabulous workshops! Just this morning Hannah was asking her little brother some discussion questions after reading to him, explaining, “this is just as we do in LitWits Jack, so, well, you know, you can get the most from a story!” Thank you sweet ladies for an AMAZING year of workshops and inspiring our girl to read the classics
I just want to thank you both for an amazing experience for Emily. She LOVED the writing workshop! You both are so encouraging and helpful to her and make her feel very confident! I really wish I had these experiences growing up!
My kids both said unequivocally: “I want to do that again.” I was worried that it might be a little too schooly for my PTSD (post-traumatic school disorder) kids–sitting in a classroom-like setting, worksheets–but you guys clearly made it fun and engaging. Thank you for that. They spent the rest of the day writing and drawing on their [Anne of Green Gables handmade] slates. ..If you could keep my tree-climbing, non-writing, head-in-the-clouds little guy interested, you must be doing something right.
My daughter LOVES these classes! THANKS for making this such a fun AND educational experience!!
What a wonderful time my kids have at LitWits! And I love reading their work, so creative and funny. They are very proud of what they accomplish in class and read it aloud to all at the dinner table that night.
These kits are perfect for my son who is a visual spatial learner. He loves hands-on activities that help him delve deeper into the subject/topic. Your kits do just that and more!
After spending my son's early years doing lots of interesting, hands-on unit studies around good picture books, I wanted something that would continue to draw him into the story in an active way. That's hard to find for older kids! Last year, though, I stumbled across LitWits Kits and we really enjoyed the two we tried! They included great activities and handouts designed to really make the kids think instead of just recalling details.
Thanks for allowing Emmy (even at age 6!) to experience Shakespeare in what I know will be a wonderful, meaningful and memorable way. I wasn’t going to sign her up because, after all, it is Shakespeare. But she insisted. Because it’s LitWits. You guys. Can’t blame her!
