Day & Time: Wednesday 1:45-2:55
Mentor: Angie Gardner aka Frizzle
We will embark on a Harry Potter themed journey discovering the great stories behind the Hogwarts Adventure. Along the way we will creatively employ magical thinking to unlock the joys of the six English Language Arts: listening, speaking, reading, writing, viewing, and visually representing. We will utilize each one in this class through individual and collaborative projects.
Each student will complete a Common Place Book filled with Words of Wisdom and favorite quotes from the book series. Along our journey we will build our vocabulary, study figurative language, look for some of life’s universal themes: Fortune, Friendship, Happiness, Identity, Justice, Love, Desire, Power, Suffering and Freewill… and have a whole lot of fun!

I utilize Google Classroom for all assignments, communications, online discussions, and updates. This makes it easy to refer to for homeschool teacher meetings, assignment details and due dates, and grades.
