The 7th and 8th grade students in Ms. Kneifl's Reading class are reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Professor Kneifl's Wizardry and Witch Wand Crafting Class created their own wands. Students had a fun day designing their own wands, determining what type of wood they would be made of, what would be in the magical core of the want, as well as what special crafting their wand would be best used for. (Charms, Transfiguration, Defense Against the Dark Arts, etc. ) In Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Harry visits Mr. Ollivander's shop and leaves with the wand that chose him. The wand chooses the wizard! Students will also participate in the Hogwarts House sorting, as well as some other fun activities while they read the novel.
