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!

Potions And Pets!


       A while back Skyler made a dragons egg and since then it has sat in the Mandrake pot! What she didn't know is that all this time a baby dragon was growing inside it! She just had to wait until it was cold enough for it to hatch! Since Florida rarely sees actual cold I never dreamed this would happen but low and behold some spells were cast and we had BRRRRRRR freezing temps!! Well, out hatched her newest little friend! 









      A new baby dragon she has named Tempest! I knew I would raise at least one Shakespeare addict!

Skyler Making Potions



      Since we are doing the big Medieval Study this month Magic School has taken a break, but that is not stopping Skyler from learning new potions with her Moon and Moth Magic Potions Set!

Moon And Moth Magic Co.


      So I was really bored one night and as usual I searched out some ideas for Magic School and low and behold I found something amazing!! This cool little company that makes potions! Moon and Moth Magic Co. is MAGICAL! Skyler had no idea this was on its way so BIG surprise to her and she loved it! I was astounded from the moment the box opened!



      Look at that cool packaging! I was honestly planning on repacking this in some brown paper with twine and slapping on a Diagon Alley label, but this was beyond beautiful in my opinion!



      
      She opened the box and said, "oh a big butterfly book" LOL! I told her in the magic world things are not always as they seem. When she started to pull it out she realized right off this was NO ordinary book at all.

Week 5 Magic Fun!!


      I was gonna skip doing book week posts because there isn't much interesting about watching a kid read LOL! We have been pretty bad on Magic School scheduling and I am hoping that the New Year makes me get it in gear and do this stuff cause she really enjoys it and honestly I do too! I love that at 13 she still has that twinkle about her! 


      She is reading through Dragonolgy for Magical Creatures and really enjoying herself with it.

Week 4 Magic Fun

       
      So we had another project week! These seem to be her favorite weeks of course. We just had to split all the books she is wanting to read and all the activities she is wanting to do because too much in one day was too overwhelming! Alternating the weeks seem to be much, much better! So we started off with potions this week and it was all about mystical sand!

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.
