New! Magical Muggle Masterminds: Grades 3-5

Are you obsessed with Harry Potter? Do you love everything related to Harry Potter so much that you would be willing to stay at school past the bell? Is your Potter passion enough to read and write about Harry Potter’s world? Come meet fellow Longmeadow Potterheads to explore and create reading and writing magic together. We will use our five sessions to read and write in different genres and forms to reinforce literacy skills and strategies students are learning in their classrooms. As Professor Dumbledore says, “Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic.” Let’s make Dumbledore proud with our magical musings! Interested students should have read at least one of the books in the Harry Potter series prior to the start of this class. Instructor: Vanessa Vigna
