Rewarding Learning with Learning

Posted by on June 22, 2009

Buddy has finally finished all of the various math workbooks etc. that we have been working through this year.  It was a little like pulling teeth at times; at least until he figured out that he really does know the various math facts.  He seemed to struggle especially with remembering his subtraction facts.  During his most recent melt-down and disbelief that he would ever remember them, I reminded him that less than a year ago he couldn’t read or do addition – things he now finds easy.  I also had a talk with the principal (Daddy) who then offered a new incentive for finishing all of his math curriculum – the Math Blaster computer game from Knowledge Adventure.  Buddy received his reward this afternoon and is having a blast playing his new game.  I love being able to reward his learning with more learning.
