really liked it

I was looking for guidance in helping to motivate my second grade student, who was starting school with excitement around the social aspect, but much less interest in any sort of writing/reading/science/math endeavors. Now, perhaps it just took a little time for her to get going, or maybe I did learn a few tricks, but my daughter does seem much more engaged. We have started a few activities that she enjoys and looks forward to each week (like playing soccer on a team, and drawing with special sketching pencils and "designing" her own clothing). There is a lot less whining about wanting to watch tv, and more interest in riding her scooter after school and helping me in the evenings with basic housekeeping chores. I can't totally chalk this up to just reading a book, but I like to think it played at least a small part!
