Whatever It Takes...

to get him to enjoy his homework. 
Pierson had the disadvantage of starting Kindergarten barely speaking English.   Letters?   What are letters? All he knew were characters... and those aren't helpful at all when you are trying to learn the phonics of the alphabet. 
Therefore reading has not been his favorite thing to do. 
So we set some goals. When he accomplished set goals he gets a prize.
 The first prize, Buzz Lightyear wings. 
We were thrilled that he was excited about the goals we set.
 The second prize, Buzz Lightyear goggles. 
(I think he likes them?)

The next reading prize is a Buzz Lightyear costume. Head to toe. It will complete the whole ensemble. I can't wait for the day I can show you the entire Buzz!
Pierson, we are so very proud of you and the progress you have made. I know you will continue to climb the reading ladder and be off the charts in no time!

Oh Buzz, how totally responsible of you to complete your studies at home!
Looking forward to seeing the complete ensemble!
