  1. DD got a message from Amazon that "The Complete Harry Potter Collection" (Kindle Edition) is available on Amazon for 99 cents. We are trying to buy it, but when we click on "Buy at Pottermore" the price is incredibly high. I made screen shots of 2 pages on Amazon, showing the $0.99 price. Question: How can I contact Amazon Customer Service, for help in purchasing this at the advertised price of 99 cents? https://www.amazon.com/Complete-Harry-Potter-Collection-ebook/dp/B005CRP9IE/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1470834973&sr=1-1&keywords=the+complete+harry+potter+collection#nav-subnav TIA! Lanny
  2. Hi friends, Hit me with your best, most fun Harry Potter themed learning ideas. I have an 11 year old headed for Hogwarts and I want to do something to make school fun for him over the next couple of weeks. (But I don't have time right now to be super crafty about it, so bonus points if it's easy to implement!) Thanks!!!
  3. Hi all, I am in the initial stages of planning this Harry Potter class and am now looking for some kids for this middle school level online class Class specs are as foll: Class Size - 5 kids Cost/kid - $200 8 week intensive class (May - June 2014) Days of class -TBD The class will focus on studying and discussing the Harry Potter texts in depth and we hope to cover 2 or 3 HP books (still TBD). Below is a link that you can use if you are interested in knowing more about the middle school level Harry Potter class scheduled to start in May. Open Info Session is scheduled for Tues 4/15 at 11am PT https://www3.gotomeeting.com/register/287125542 If you click the link around the time of the session, it will bring you straight into the GoToMeeting session where we can talk with Mr Olsen of Mythgard Institute. If you click it before, you can register for the session in advance, and will thereafter receive a reminder email about attending the session. Either way will work fine. Pls email me offlist at arvinderoswal@gmail.com if you're interested in this class. Regards Arvinder
  4. You have to check out this recreation of Hogwarts. It is amazing! It took the creator, Alice Finch, twelve months to build, and she used 400,000 lego bricks. You can read an interview with her here.
  5. Who has done this? I'm thinking that I'd like to do this during our break (we break in fall). I signed up for one of the yahoo groups and became overwhelmed. :svengo: Anyone have plans/schedule they would like to share?
  6. Earlier, I posted pics of the Gryffindor bag that I knit for dd and was going to fill with HP goodies to surprise her with on our recent train trip. Well, we had a great car attendant who was willing to play along. Here's the video. (I did tell her later, as I put a LOT of work into it and wanted some credit...she said "OK, I get it...don't tell me any more.":tongue_smilie:)
  7. My husband and I both read aloud to the kids (me during the day and he at night). He started reading Harry Potter to the kids and they love it so much that I can't seem to find any book that will keep their attention now. I almost regret having him start those...but not really...they are good books. I am enjoying them as much as the kids. PLEASE give me some ideas for me to read to them. I really would prefer not be the fantasy books like Harry Potter. I don't want my kids to start thinking those types of books are the only "good" ones out there...especially my boys . My kids are :dd age 11, ds ages 10 and 7. thank you for any and all suggestions. Kathy
  8. I'm currently teaching a high school lit. analysis class using Windows to the World (which I've used before) and was dismayed to discover that only a couple of students recognized the allusion to the Phoenix in a story we were reading (both in its classical and its Christian sense) --and the ones who did were the two who had read the HP books. It struck me that one way to provide a broad crash course in "classical schema" for so many homeschool students who are not familiar with classical mythology (the ones I know here!) would be to work through the HP series (plus to cover so many other literary elements....) Wondering if there are any lit studies out there for the series that anyone would recommend?
  9. So I know this might be controversial, but we're reading Harry Potter aloud to ds8. He's super excited. Are there any materials out there for using Harry Potter.... vocab stuff, anything....academic? Maybe just wishful thinking.
  10. Hi all, Has anyone tried to do a high school level course doing literary analysis on the Harry Potter series? My dd and ds are facinated by these books. I really would love to teach literary analysis on something they enjoy and understand instead of trying to have them write about books they have a difficult time with understanding. I am sure we could write plenty of papers about imagery ans symbolism. But what else could we do with them? I have been searching on the internet and found some ideas but was hoping for a few more. I would love to see them gain confidence in literary analysis this way and then we can move on to meatier stuff. Any thoughts? Thanks
  11. Do you allow it or not? This can be about any Disney shows. Please feel free to list scripture references. If you have stopped allowing your dc to watch some things, how did you explain it to them? I didn't realize my dd was watching this on the computer. I've watched it a little and did not like what I saw. On one hand, I remember being exposed to magic and spells through children's literature. On the other hand, this seems different. Maybe it's just the rotten kids attidude. I don't know. Sometimes, I feel like the only mom in the world who limits her childs viewing.
  12. Appropriate as today The Deathly Hallows Part I is out!!! It made me misty eyed, I am not ashamed to say. It so completely expressed how I feel about this series and others. "And though it's nowhere I have been, I will keep on smiling for the times I had with them." Same song, different video with the lyrics
  13. I’ve written up a very detailed lesson plan for teaching Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows for homeschoolers: http://www.knittedthoughts.com/2010/12/harry-potter-homeschool-craft.html I homeschool my own 2 daughters and teach a class on Harry Potter at the Huckleberry Center for Creative Learning and have had many discussions with parents about the series. The book (and movie) includes the rather difficult concept of “horcruxes†and this lesson (which includes a really nice writing component and craft) helps kids understand what Rowling is doing in this book and why it is so dark. The ultimate message of the series is actually quite life affirming and I think if your kids have read the book or seen the movie it’s important to discuss how the horcruxes lead to this ultimate message. My lesson plan is really fun for the kids and opens up a door for discussing these more difficult ideas. If you enjoy it and find it useful, please feel free to repost to facebook or other homeschooling forums or email it to anyone you think might benefit – homeschooled or not, this would be a fun craft and great educational opportunity for all kids. Enjoy! Holly Van Houten
  14. I'm thinking about getting my DD, 10, some of the Lego Harry Potter sets for Christmas. She loved a robotics camp she went to this summer that used Legos, and she loves the Harry Potter books right now. Reviews? Suggestions?
  15. In honor of tonight's midnight opening of the 7th Harry Potter movie, I've written a post detailing what I do in my Harry Potter class for homeschoolers: http://www.knittedthoughts.com/2010/11/how-to-teach-harry-potter.html We cover a ton of fun and academic topics and in the class and I'd be thrilled if it inspires any Potteresque studies to spice up your own homeschool routine. Hope you enjoy! Holly Van Houten P.S. I'm posting a link to the blog because it's just too much detail to include here. Hope nobody minds. Follow Up Glad people are finding it useful. Feel free to post the link to anyone you think might find it helpful. I've also written in greater length about the writing I do with homeschoolers here: http://www.knittedthoughts.com/2010/...schoolers.html and here: http://www.knittedthoughts.com/2010/...with-kids.html The 1st applies to everyone, but the writing suggestions apply to even the youngest homeschoolers. The 2nd applies primarily to tweens and teens.
  16. If you're teaching chemistry to a kid who likes Harry Potter, you must see this: http://www.knittedthoughts.com/2010/11/harry-potter-sings-periodical-table-of.html
  17. The recent threads in which the Harry Potter books have come up has got me to thinking. Who has read it and still been against it. I was in the "totally against" it camp. Avoided it at all costs. It was on my 8-8-8 List last year under my "Banned Books" category. I enjoyed the book, was surprised at the hype, and now have read them all. I am a very conservative Baptist. Just so you know my background;) Now I would like this NOT to be a nasty thread, 'cause I'm really just curious about who has read it and still been totally against it. That's why I'm posting it as a poll. Please, if you can't say something nice, don't say it at all:D
