Harry Potter has inspired my reluctant reader!

My reluctant reader has been sparked into life via The Cat in the Hat and Harry Potter. The moment a child starts to read independantly is one which is rarely witnessed by parents but this week I have been thrilled to the bone as my six year old dd has found her reading mojo!
She has come from the stance of “I hate reading and I can’t do it ” to reading an The Cat in the Hat from cover to cover. OK – it took nearly 45 mins but it was amazing. We have now leapt to reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone – as this will take a very long time with every word sounded out (he! He! ) I have bought the dvd for some light relief !
This reading development has been the result of no specific teaching strategy except loads of games of I Spy – proof to me, (a doubting Thomas as an ex-teacher) that informal learning even autonomous learning – immersion in life if you like – really does work !
