Champion kid strikes again.
She has been badgering me to read the first Harry Potter story to her. I am resisting because I don’t think the themes are appropriate at this age. I don’t think I can edit them out without compromising the story, Tolkein was easier that way.
Anyway, ticked off that I wouldn’t read it, she declared that she’d read it herself. And she did. The whole first sentence. It took time, and perseverance. And she learned how a comma inserts expression. Then when she was done she started transcribing the words on the page. I had to go when she was halfway through, so she hurriedly finished off by putting ‘Mummy’ at the end, but she was sure to use a fullstop to end her sentence. Her page was proudly presented to me as a gift, and happily received. I couldn’t be prouder.
Lucky she spent the past week at school being ‘challenged’ by learning the letter A.
