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!

Week 2 Magic Fun!


       I was called "best mom ever" and "coolest mom in the world" several times after today! Apparently, not many moms teach their child fire based potions in the house or make butter beer fudge! This was project week and we had a blast to be truthful I loved every minute of it! The potion we did today was burning basilisk skin and it was awesome! I knew it would be wonderful so after she finished all her mixing I decided to video the outcome.

Week 1 Magic School


     Between a hurricane, sick kids and outside commitments Magic School has been hit or miss. We never even technically finished our week one from when we started it! So, this was the week we finished it and did the book work. This was not a terribly fun week apparently according to my little Skyler witch! 



  This is her journal of all she will do for Magic School. She likes having everything all together in one spot so this is what I came up with! She will read her books and watch a movie if I can find something fitting. 








She also still enjoys using her quill pens.

Week 1 2017 2018 Magic Fun


     To kick off our first back to Magic School day, we watched the best movie ever, Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them! Skyler absolutely adored it she said it was even cooler than Harry Potter movies! It must have something to do with the fact that it was all about the animals of course! Today was all about the Magical Creatures as far as Skyler was concerned. 



     For Cauldron Cooking she brewed up a cool pixie punch smoothie! (blueberry smoothie for ya muggles).


     She drank from her super cool hand painted Herbology glasses too!

What We Are Doing For The First Semester


     I am so excited to start Magic school up again this year! Last year we had started mid-year and it was more of a on the fly plan but this year I had time to plan a whole semester!!! Our classes this semester are Quidditch, Arithmancy, Potions, Care Of Magical Creatures and of course Cauldron Cooking! We will still be sticking with our every other week schedule. One week is more reading our books and doing our written work the next week is when we do the fun stuff!

     Since in our Muggle school we use The Thinking Tree Journals I really wanted to have something similar for her classes with Magic School. So I searched online and came up with some stuff I tossed together to make her a journal. All of the planner pages were found online and are on our Hogwarts Style Home School Pinterest Page. I put it all in a binder with a page on front she can color if she so chooses too. The binder is also better than having it all bound that way I can add things I may find or make later.

Week 11 Of Magic Fun

     She was up at almost seven to watch this movie! Plants Behaving Badly. It was all about orchids and she was loving how many different ones there were and how many colors. She even had her breakfast while watching it. 



     For Magical Creatures we have started dragons! I adore dragons. I adore anything dinosaur like so that is most likely why dragons fit the bill for me. We will most likely stick with dragons for a few weeks since there is so much to do with them. I have had the Dragonology book and writing set for years. We still love them.

Week 10 Of Magic Fun!


     It was project week so FUN FUN!!!! Skyler finished the book What Were the Salem Witch Trials? She had never really heard about any of that type of stuff before so she was a bit amazed. She was shocked people actually thought that way and even put others to death. So, it was a history eye opener for sure!

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!
