LitWits Workshops, LLC
We bring great books to life!
Date: Every 2 weeks on Th and Fri (Aug 13-Aug 5) from 9:00am to 4:00pm
Ages: 7-12 Admission Fees: $65
Special Instructions: Upstairs (no elevator access)

Dates: See our books/workshop schedule below (each workshop is offered on your choice of Thursday OR Friday)
Times: 9a-12p for ages 7+ and 1p-4p for ages 10+

LitWits® workshops are hands-on, memorable experiences of literature. We explore the sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and textures of great books through prop-based discussion and straight-from-the-story activities.

"LitWits is motivating, educational, and inspirational . . . Your workshops have shown [my son] that exploring the world of literature and writing can be fun. I can't thank you enough."

When kids experience literature with their senses, they empathize with the characters. They learn naturally, and remember more. Best of all, they have a great time -- and want to read more great books! And kids who read more great books learn more great things.

Our "straight-from-the-pages" props, activities and creative projects are carefully planned to naturally convey key academic information such as:

There's no pressure to perform or participate - we want to inspire your kids to read great books. See our Teacher Support page (or Facebook albums) to see what we've done so far and read more about our experiential methods at http://www.litwitsworkshops.com/.

LitWits Workshops is an approved vendor for Ocean Grove Charter School.
