still thinking about rewards

i'm reminded of alfie's point that if the work isn't too much for the student. and if the student understands the long-term goal of the activity even if the work isn't inherently interesting. then you get the same result out of a promised reward as you do if you gently remind the student to focus/continue working.

and you have the benefit of not turning the child away from the intrinsic properties of the activity.
