Some children have a bit of difficulty staying focused on activities that they haven’t chosen themselves. A useful strategy for many is to use a little reward system where the child collects tokens as they work to get a reward when they’ve finished. Download the one I use by clicking on the link below:
You’ll need to cut out and laminate either the 3 or the 5 token card, whichever you choose to use, and the set of tokens your child likes. You’ll also need some pictures of whatever your child might like to work for. There are some general ones in the download. To stick your tokens on you can use either blu-tack or self adhesive velcro, whichever you have to hand. You can even use sellotape if everything is laminated.
