Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery

Class Description

No one who meets Anne of Green Gables can forget her.  Your student will be immersed into ‘everything Anne’ in this multi-sensory approach to the beloved classic Anne of Green Gables.  Students, boys and girls, will find her story and the characters endearing.  From the quiet strength of  Matthew Cuthbert to the transforming character of Marilla.  Anne is not just a girl’s book.   Boys are sure to find a hero in Gilbert Blythe, Anne’s rival from the moment he utters that volatile word:  “CARROTS”.

Your student can ‘experience’ wonderful literature as they are drawn into Anne’s delightful imaginary world and learn her lessons, too.  Student will  layer story symbols as art, send characters into the future, make their own theme-related slates and crafts, write Anne-style compositions,  smell stinky cake, and so much more!
