Beffers asks:

How can I get my 5th grader to want to learn?

He doesn't like anything to do with reading. Always fusses when it comes time to sit and read for a lesson. How can I make it fun for him so he wants to read more?

What the Expert Says:

Hello and thank you for writing to JustAsk!

Learning needs to be exciting and interactive for a child of this age. Consider having him work with different mediums such as a computer, markers that have different colors or other hands on materials. Also, group learning that is supervised sometimes generates motivation.

Good luck!
