A love note to me, a love note to his sister, and a list of colors and robots and words he found in a "Wall-E" book. Last night, when he was doing all of this, you could just see the sheer joy of accomplishment on his face. More proof that unschooling works. Also what works is bribery. A couple of weeks ago he had to finish half of two works books in order to earn his remote control EVE. The real reason I "forced" him to work in workbooks is because I knew that he could write and he just needed the motivation to prove it to himself. Now he's writing. So maybe a bit of slight force occasionally isn't so bad too :).
