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 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!

 These parts of speech cards are from Teachers Pay Teachers They are actually full size poster like pages that I shrunk down to use a cards for Skyler this way they fit right into her cauldron! I also purchased the Harry Potter sentence combining set for her. Now how am I using these things? Well I go to this handy dandy little site worksheets work and let the magic begin! Did I mention this is a FREE site!!! I make her cursive pages for starters. Assignments include writing the names of ten different creatures, pick a part of speech and give me ten examples from your books, I write out a few sentences and she has to combine them and she also is using the Harry Potter vocabulary book where she looks up three words of her choosing and writes the definition! So complete grammar right there!

 Yes she loves using her quills! For Cauldron Cooking she made treacle fudge! (OK, she made fudge, but we can call it whatever we want)

 That was our week for Magic! It was a blast. I love creating these memories with my children!
