Fun Literature kits from LitWits ~ a TOS review

Happy Thursday Friends! I can’t believe Thanksgiving is just one week away! Today I have an aweseom literature study if you are a book-loving family. Since we are a book-loving family that uses a literature approach to homeschooling, I am always on the lookout for ideas on how to get the most out of books we read. I jumped at the chance to checkout LitWit Kits from LitWits. We were given access to 4 LitWits but for this review I choose to have Montana work with the LitWits Kit for Island of The Blue Dolphins.

Reading to your children is a big deal as far as growth and development. The less screen time and the more snuggling and reading does wonders for the brain and body. LitWits were created by, Becky and Jenny, who are sisters and best friends. Since they love great books they wanted to instill a literature rich generation of book lovers starting with their own children. With the LitWit kits your child will get a hands-on, multi-sensory learning experience about selected literature.

Each kit offers a variety of activities to fully engage with the book. From puzzles, games, preparing and eating food, to preforming short skits there are so many learning activities to accompany each novel being read. Each LitWit Kit is delivered in a digital format PDF file and can be accessed online in your account. With over 40 novel titles to choose from there is sure to be a novel you’ll want to check out with your family.

Montana worked through the LitWit Kit for the novel Island of the Blue Dolphin, a novel in which I have fond memories of reading when I was her age. Having access to this hands-on literature study helped her connect with the novel’s main character, Karana. Montana especially enjoyed the art projects involved in this kit. She loved doing her cave drawing with the oil pastels.

She didn’t really want to complete many of the other activities that went with this novel but I made sure she looked at them all. McKenzie and I are starting to read The Witch of Blackbird Pond and I look forward to sharing the LitWit Kit with her. We are only on Chapter 3 but she is eager to play the games and to create her own hornbork.

I look forward to using the other two LitWit Kits we picked out, A Wrinkle in Time and From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler after the Christmas holiday break. I will be reading these two books aloud to McKenzie and Micah and I look forward to doing all the fun activities these LitWit Kits contain.
