Occasionally I can be very stubborn. There are a few things in life I refuse to do just to go against the grain. Reading and watching anything Harry Potter related was one of those things until this school year.
I never really had a reason to not read the books or watch the movies. I simply didn't want to. This year I have G in my class. G is a big HP fan and immediately started trying to convince me that I needed to read the books. I figured since I was challenging my students to step out of their comfort zone when it comes to genres, I probably should too.
I gave in and checked out the first book. I read it. I liked it. I liked it a lot.
I've since read the second one and am planning to read number three soon. When I received an email from scholastic saying J.K.Rowling was doing a webcast for students my interest was peeked.
It turns out it is this Thursday during my Pre AP English class, which G happens to be in. Perfect. I got in touch with our technology person and it looks like we should be able to do this.
The party planning began. Any excuse for fun snacks. I went to Pinterest of course and found several cute ideas.
I will be serving these Nimbus 2000s
Along with Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans (thanks to my brother).
We will also have the much needed wands.
Cauldron cakes & petit fours are a must simply because they are so yummy. I'll post a picture of these soon.
To drink we will be having a special potion that changes colors when poured. The color will determine your house since the Sorting Hat only works in Hogwarts.
My kids and I are super pumped about this. I love a good party.
