LitWits Kits from LitWits: A TOS Crew Review

LitWits Kits from LitWits

I love when literature comes to life!  We have been discovering a fun way to liven up our literature studies with LitWits Kits.

LitWits is a company founded by two sisters that share a love of reading and experiencing books together.  They offer 46  LitWits Kits that bring great books to life for you and your family.

We have gotten the opportunity to take a peek at 4 titles:

Let me show you what a LitWit Kit is all about.  Check out this video:

Each LitWit kit arrives as an online experience.  You can also download all the great suggestions in a handy PDF as well.  It's well organized and very easy to use.

Each of the kits include:

  • Welcome
  • Overview  - a basic synopsis and introduction
  • Prop Ideas - great ideas for items to display and ways to bring the book to life
  • Hands-on Fun -   activities to get you moving and creating
  • Bookbites - another way to experience the book - with your taste buds
  • Takeaways - what did the characters learn, what can you learn?
  • Hand-outs - printable worksheets - vocabulary, literary analysis, maps and more
  • Learning Links - great ways to explore more
  • Great Quotes - we LOVE quotes
  • Copyright
We were excited to jump right in with our next literature book - The Phantom Tollbooth.  This is a fun book all about words and numbers!

Our LitWit kit gave us great ideas of ways to experience our book and to make it even more memorable.  Since we were doing this together at home, I skipped their Prop Suggestions.  But, this would be a fabulous addition to a coop literature class!

Our first activity was a Chromograph - basically we colored music.  We had so much fun jamming out to the William Tell Overture and creating colored music scores.

Next we created a fun project celebrating Norton and Jules from our reading.  The girls really enjoyed creating personalized maps with magazine letters and illustrations from the book - and we have a fun way to remember how much we enjoyed reading the book together!


One thing I love about LitWit Kits is that there is a wide variety of activities you can choose from - pick one, or all of them.  You can customize to your family. Most of our activities used supplies we readily had on hand.  All the work has been done for you.

Facing the Doecahedron (had to google how to say that one...) was a fun project to build a 3-d 12 sided shape decorated with all our facial expressions.  

Bookbites is a section that allows you "to taste the story".  The Quotes and Learning Links are sections that will take you to other useful resources on the web. 

The Takeaways section gives you plenty of topics to explore together - for instance brain hemispheres and etymology are topics from The Phantom Tollbooth to get you interested in learning more.  Valuing education and the visualizing of ideas are also topics to discuss and explore together. LitWits has made it easy for you.

A PDF section of Handouts is included as well.  Vocabulary, literary analysis, creative writing, math and more are all included to round out the learning.

I am very impressed with the quality and quantity of experiences each LitWit Kit includes!  You can really make reading an adventure, and all the hard work is done for you.  With so many titles to choose from, you will have no problem finding a good fit for your family.

Be sure to check them out!
