Product Description
This web-based kit includes printables - templates, activity aids, academic handouts, and more. It's packed with hands-on ways to get into the characters’ shoes - like a "field trip inside the book!" See a sample kit at: https://litwits.com/little-house-in-the-big-woods/

Written for teachers by teachers, LitWits Kits offer straight-from-the-story activity and project ideas, along with handouts and suggestions for thematic props -- all integrated with three central "takeaway topics." Here is everything you need to bring this book to life for your kids, in experiential AND academic ways! CCSS alignment is included, too.

HOW IT WORKS: The "digital download" purchased here is an instruction sheet that tells you how to access your kit on our website.

Some activities from The LitWits Kit for AROUND THE WORLD IN EIGHTY DAYS: This story is the original Amazing Race, but with a French valet and lots of whist playing. Your kids can practice their Reform Club demeanor before they sail around the world in eighty minutes — take THAT wager, Phileas Fogg! During their rapid journey they can greet customs officials in the local language, get visas in their freshly-made passports, rescue a desperate widow in India, dine on succulent fruit in an exotic port, join an acrobatic troupe in Hong Kong, and disable runaway trains in the American midwest!

Every kit includes:

sensory prop suggestions, with photos
creative project and activity ideas, with photos
printable templates, excerpts, and activity prompts
takeaway topics, to fuel meaningful conversations
printable handouts for creative writing, the narrative arc, setting, and more
research and audiovisual links, for one-stop prep and homework help
great quotes from the book, where allowed by copyright


Ages/Grades
This kit is adaptable to a wide range of ages. We find 8-12-year-olds consistently “ready to LitWit,” but you know best what your kids are ready for, interested in, and capable of. CCSS alignment is included for grades 3-6.
