When my son started school he had a hard time with homework and other activities after school. And is understandable he was tired of doing all those chores in school and works but I found a way to motivate him to keep working hard.
So I picked some colored papers, crayons, glue and scissors I had at home and decided to sit down and plan this. There was a couple of points I wanted to focus for this: writing his name, practice his ABC's, numbers and book reading.
And I find it amazing how this little trick made a huge improvement on my son regarding his homework as well as in school. I was told by his speech therapist and the teacher that they see how much he has improved since he started school.
So far we already finished one board and the look on his face when he finished was awesome, his reward was a date to Chuck E. Cheese.
Is in them the control on how fast they want it but at the same time the practice and work daily will help them learn and improve what they need. That's why I focused on just 5 things to achieve during this semester.
Here is my son with his board finished :)
