Our creative teaching resources help you make great books meaningful and memorable! When you get stories off the page in real-life ways, you help kids understand — and want to read more. And kids who read more great books learn more great things!
Great things like language arts and academic skills, including history and science. But greatest of all is the powerful influence of great characters. In them, kids can to see themselves, and their own potential.
LitWits Kits are private pages that deliver the best of our experiential literature workshops for kids. (Each kit page includes a 30-40-page PDF version for easy printing, too.) At checkout, you’ll create an account that gives you instant access.
Each LitWits Kit page includes everything below:
What makes LitWits Kits special?
LitWits Kits hold the unique ideas and materials we created for our experiential workshops , held in Santa Cruz since 2010. Our immersive, meaningful approach to books has been kid-tested for years. We know what a difference it makes, especially for reluctant readers. (Click here to learn how and why it works; click here for a glimpse of the fun.) We want to share what we have with you and your kids!
We also want to save you time and stress. LitWits Kits are instant, cohesive resources. You can stop surfing and patching together your lesson plans!
How do I use LitWits Kits in my home or classroom?
Just pull the parts that work for you and your kids! Even in a single activity or BookBites snack, we’ve given you lots to talk about. (Don’t feel you have to hold a half-day workshop like we did — good grief, who has time for that? That’s why homeschool parents in Santa Cruz have been sending their kids to us since 2010!)
