Learning, but most important, to show that they did learn.
Not all kids learn the same way or at the same rates. This is not to say some kids are slow but that they could be reacting to either a lack of interest in the course or a limited aptitude for it. The best thing for the former, are other students "infecting" the kid with interest in the course with a little encouragement from the teacher and yes, the parents.
In some sense, it's treating kids much the same way they get treated, or where, in college and university. Learn on your own, think on your own, with only some basic guidance and then prove it with exams and tests. The younger they are, the more guidance you give, but ultimately, let the kids go about learning in their comfort and but understand that they have to prove they have at the end of it with tests and exams. Plus yes, some bonus work assignments to pick up pace if they want, with tests and exams to give a second chance within a course.
