Transition Time

Avlyn turned 5 in December and I've noticed a transition already in her eagerness to learn. My once eager learner has turned into a hesitant, I-don't-want-to-be-bothered-with-school attitude. It could be the December break we took, or the fact that she just got over an illness that took a lot out of her, butI'm finding myself struggling to work with her.

Today she wanted to do our cooking projects, but not her reading or math. And I'm not a sit-down-and-do-your-workbook-or-else type of homeschool mom. Since we've had a long break with the holidays and then her illness, all I had planned for today was a review. Any ideas for dealing with a hesitant preschooler, or at least one unwilling to go back to 'school'?
