As I started discussing the program with the boys, Ashish came running with his books for Word Frames. Even further, he took an initiative to write down the materials used in Hidden Treasures and to bring it together to the Hidden Treasures leaders.
These things are not unusual in most of our kids, but Ashish is the same child who used to escape from the programs. He was the only reason for his team scoring poorly in the Word Frames competition. However, after Christmas vacation, Ashish has a totally different attitude towards the programs and seemingly this motivation and response can be continuing.
