Who's coming?

2 people are attending Hogwarts at Home: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone – Grades 2 (mature) – 6 – Fall 2021 – 10 Weeks


In this course, students will be immersed in the magical world of wizards and wands, as they read J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.

The Daily Prophet reports that “because of the recent health events which have transpired in Muggle society, Professor Dumbledore has instructed all first-year Hogwarts students to receive their instruction at home.” Each class will begin with a teacher-led read aloud from that week’s reading assignment. Students will be given the option of practicing the important skill of reading aloud as well. We will learn together through the use of engaging literature, class discussion, comprehension activities, and videos. Learning new vocabulary words will be a focus of this course, as will literary analysis. Prior to the beginning of the course, families may opt to receive a Hogwarts Acceptance Letter via the Muggle postal service. Wands at the ready, magical new adventures await!

Hogwarts robes are not required for class attendance but are strongly encouraged. I recommend the Rubie’s brand, available on Amazon.

Wands will be used during classes; these can be homemade or purchased online. My personal choice for wands is The Nobel Collection, available on Amazon; these wands are sturdy and come in packaging like Mr. Ollivander himself would have used.

Students are asked to keep their course materials in a three-ring binder. Basic art supplies such as markers, colored pencils, glue, and blank paper will be useful. Parents may be asked to print handouts ahead of time, to be used during classes.

Students will be asked to watch the movie version of the text after class seven; it is rated PG and parents will need to rent, borrow, or purchase the movie for at-home viewing.

Students will be responsible for reading three chapters outside of class each week. Students may read from the text or listen to an audio recording. Brief comprehension and vocabulary quizzes will be given each week; these will be taken through CANVAS. Students will complete a final project, to be presented during week nine of the course.

NOTE:

Registration deadline is September 15, 2021.

There must be a minimum of 5 students to run this class.

Such a Fun Class

Rated 5 out of 5

The Lego Design Series is such a fun class! It’s also much more than just playing with LEGO pieces. Currently, they’re creating a mini movie (2 minutes or less), learning about plots and characters, etc. In the past, they created environmentally sustainable cities, built a base to support life on the moon, and a few others. It has helped my daughter really dig into her creative side.

After deciding to homeschool this year, I searched high and low for an online class for our youngest child in order to grant me a small built-in break in my week and enable me to focus on some of our other children. I could not be more thrilled with the outcome of this enrollment! As a fellow teacher I was quick to see that Mrs. Brittany Robbins teaches this class with extraordinary classroom management skills and creates an engaging and welcome atmosphere. My newly-minted 7yo was transported into a classroom where she made friends and connected with others. The class is engaging and encouraging to new readers and emerging readers alike. The emphasis on vocabulary expansion has enabled me to shift my other curriculum studies with her. I would absolutely recommend any class with Mrs. Robbins for any child of any age in the future!

The Best Class She Could Imagine

My daughter LOVES Mrs. Robbins’ Harry Potter class. She says the class is “the best class she could imagine.” I appreciate that Mrs. Robbins sneaks in plenty of vocabulary, comprehension checks, and reading practice alongside the fun. We immediately signed up for the follow up class!

My daughter felt very grown up participating in this class each week and really looked forward to Tuesdays so she could see her classmates and participate through sharing what she learned. It encouraged her to start reading more on her own while accepting kids who weren’t there yet.

My daughter has recently gone on a Harry Potter kick. She loves all things Harry Potter and looked forward to this class all week. She came to class in costume and got to talk with other kids about one of her favorite topics. Great class and highly recommended!

My daughter loved this class. She is an “emerging” reader, but not really motivated to read. But she loved the content or this course and the creative things they did together. She looked forward to this class all week. Highly recommend!

This class has really helped my daughter think outside of the box. In addition to building cities and learning about important social and environmental aspects of the community, the children are given the opportunity to explore different medias to express in their creative process. Mrs. Brittany is truly amazing and really knows how to get the best out of each student.

My daughter absolutely adores Mrs. Brittany! Although she is comfortable reading, this class has really helped her learn her how to organize her thoughts, write and summarize ideas; it has also expanded her vocabulary. We were thinking of switching to the history class but she begged us to stay with this class next semester; you can’t have better proof of a class then a kid begging to work

A fun way to learn

My daughter is an emerging reader and has gained so much from this class. Brittany inspires the students and it’s so much more than a literature series. My daughter has never been so excited to work on reading. She wants to do this class on her own, she just loves her teacher. It has helped her not only with reading, but to listen and comprehend as well. I will continue to put her in the MTH classes.
