So, my daughter is seven. After much struggles, we decided to unschool her. So far, it seems to be going pretty well.
She started to read on her 7th birthday (past July)....just sat down, picked up a book and read it aloud. I nearly fell over. Since then, she has slowly started reading more, but she was always hesitant to read a lot of books because they were "too hard."
Less than a week ago, she picked up a Harry Potter book (the first one) and read it through and through. We were FLOORED! She wanted to read the book because she's seen the movies and listened to all the books on tape, but decided to read the book to find any small details she might have missed.
She's onto the second book now...and honestly, she's an Encyclopedia of Harry Potter. She knows so much information that I can't even remember-- down to very tiny details.
I wanted to find a way to encourage her Harry Potter love-- especially if it can help her with writing and spelling. She really hasn't done much of that yet and I'm not sure how she spells-- she's not very confident at it. I think she'd love a way to put all her knowledge on paper-- but haven't yet figured out how.
Obviously, it would be for fun-- and it isn't something that would be a "must," but I'd like any ideas you guys might have.
So...are there any ways my 7-year-old could further her love of HP?
