Home practice schedule

How do I get Little Tiger to practice nightly? I use the word 'study' with him. He gets very excited and signs 'up'/'book' to go upstairs to his study room. I think by using the word 'study' so often, it has been linked to fun and excitement in him. Isn't it wonderful when he is all grown up and still shows this kind of enthusiasm to studying?

We spend about 1 hour every night studying. Sometimes less and that's ok too. So, this is our modified schedule after I discovered tot school and incorporated more elements into our study time.
