We’ve been doing maths workbooks with stickers, and they are very popular. It’s interesting how mathematical interest and ability aren’t the same as workbook-filling-in abilities. Also we are again working on confidence in reading, and elegance in handwriting, and those are both quite hard. Why do my children become competent readers who swear they cannot read and are not readers and will never be able to read? And why is legibility not quite enough for handwriting?
Painting and cooking are far easier. We’ve even graduated to the advanced course: cleaning up the mess we made afterwards.
