Teaching Thomas: Homework

In order to motivate Thomas to do his homework, I give him a Spiderman sticker every time he completes his homework. Like me, he has a weak spot for Spiderman. Once he gets 10 stickers and fills up his homework chart, then he gets a prize. So far, this system has worked well.

Me: So here’s your homework. It’s due Tuesday okay?

Thomas: I don’t want homework.

Me: But if you don’t have homework, you can’t get a sticker.  Do you want a sticker next time?

Thomas: Yeah.

Me: So do you want me to give you homework?

Thomas: Yeah.

Score.
