Welcome to Hogwarts Distance Education, I hope you enjoy seeing our fun as much as I have had in the planning of it. Setting up my schoolroom has always been a big fun deal to me. I do rea;lize that the children are getting older, themes are kind of wasting away for them but I wanted just one more. Just one more big thing before they are just too old to really have fun with it anymore.

The idea started with a few posters and a yahoo group. Then of course we had to have a Honeydukes and before you knew it the kids had thrown around ideas, I saw Harry Potter parties online and this little idea has taken on a life of its own. Because like me my children have to go all out so to speak!

Magic Fun Week 9 And A Field Trip!!


      This was our book work week so not any projects but still magical fun! We did finally get our movie The Last Unicorn. Skyler really enjoyed that! 




     Stella Luna is never too far from Skyler. Her own personal petter LOL!


     We use the Harry Potter Vocabulary Builder book for her to look up three words every week. She writes the definition and gives me a sentence!

Magic Fun Week 8

     
     Today was project day! Sadly the movie with the unicorn didn't arrive in time so we just read a bit about unicorns. She did cook though! We made Kreachers onion soup. I will openly admit we used a package LOL. None of us are terribly crazy about onions but we wanted to try it along with the bread my son enjoys baking. We added some Butterbeer and had a great lunch!

Magic School Fun Week 7

     
     Well we had an amazing week at Magic School! Someone also got her uniform!!!!!!!!!! I cannot get over how terribly adorable she looks in it either. She had to have grandpa tie her tie since mom is no good with that! She is very excited for our Harry Potter field trip in two weeks in St. Augustine. I am going to go picture CRAZY!!








     So on to our school work. This week was book week. We are going back and forth so she gets to do everything. So one week it is projects and movies the next it is her text books. I also thought I would include some info on how I made her textbooks. Give every one some ideas for magic fun!

Magic Fun Week 6



   This week she finished up watching Animal Planets documentaries about mermaids for Magical Creatures. I found this cool little mermaid soap making kit at Five Below for her to make as a project this week! So she watched the movie, made soap and made a page about the movie for her journal she is putting together! 






     "Hooray"!!!! She also found her class shirt!

Magic In Our Classroom

     
     The last time we did Magic School I practically created an entire house of magic! This time I have tried to tone it down a bit! Yes, it is hard because I am always finding cool ideas or coming up with my own LOL I am also magical at finding ways to re purpose stuff and adding to my collections when it comes to themes! So I have just put stuff here and there and where ever it fits or looks cute! This is Skylers magic shelf. It has her books, more books and a lot of other odds and ends depending on what she is studying. Right now it is mostly Herbology and Magical Creatures!













     I made that little mandrake doll years ago and she is still a favorite! I found the cool blue pixie on ebay for ten bucks and he had to come to my house of course! He is pretty calm compared to the other pixies but I have been envisioning some elf on the shelf type antics for him lately! Maybe the precarious pixie??

Week 5 of Magic Fun!


      Week five was magical as usual!! This week we added some grammar and had fun watching a mermaid documentary! Animal Planet has two amazing mermaid documentaries that are just that amazing! The first is called The Body Found and the other is New Evidence. I love how they take on a whole new world in these "documentaries"! This week we watched the first. 



   She is also sporting her new pretty Gryffindor head band. She has a complete uniform that I have yet to take actual pics in. I need to find her the perfect shoes of course first!




Cauldron Cooking!


     We had such a full week that we didn't actually get to Magic School but we still did Cauldron Cooking and made Yorkshire pudding! We have never made it before or had it for that matter. Ours did not come out like the stuff we had seen online either. 








      It was still fun though and it tasted good. I wish I had the beef drippings I am sure that would have added to the flavor even more!
