I echo Claudia's suggestion of looking for something in your son's interests to which to link the facts. Also, one neat thing to try is to cover your kitchen table with shaving cream (find a smell you can tolerate!) and have your son "write" his facts in the shaving cream. There is little fear of error when you can just wipe away any mistakes. It's amazing how something with a little different twist can renew interest. I've also used clean sand (but not on the kitchen table). Susan
