This morning D started her day by watching Go, Diego, Go. While she watches her shows she plays around with toys that have migrated into the living room. Usually she is playing with stuffed animals, play kitchen stuff, and Skylander figures. She then moved onto playing Skylanders for a little while. While changing characters she just started playing with the figures instead of the game. Then she wanted her hair in two pony tails so we went and did that. This girl is all over the place, she then went in the basement and played Lego Marvel Super Heroes on the Xbox 360. When she was finished with that she read the Princess Encyclopedia that she had borrowed from the library.
We finally had to wake P up. D ate an early lunch while watching Pokemon on her iPad. When he came down, P watched ago, Diego,, Go and played on his iPad. Both of the kids ended up watching Diego while eating and relaxing on the living room floor.
Eventually we got to our school work. I got the book M is for Mitten: a Michigan Alphabet book from the library to read to the kids. Yes, I should have already owned this book and don't know why we don't. We are going to read a couple letters at a time and discuss what is read. Today we read A for apple blossom and B for bridge. We talked about how the apple blossoms turn to apples from pollination that they have already learned about. For the bridge they talk about the Macinac Bridge which we have been over plenty of times. Also in B they talked a little about the Brook Trout, so now P wants to go fishing to catch one. I told him he better call his grandpa cuz mom does not do fishing, never liked it, I don't mind the worms and fish, just boring to me.
For P's math he worked on Easy Peasy Math 2 Day 14, practicing counting by 10s with connect the dots. For English he worked on Easy Peasy English 1 Day 36 English, working main ideas. Then he proceeded to read the Pokemon Handbook.
For math D worked on Easy Peasy Getting Ready 1 Days 185 math, color sorting, 186 math, lemonade stand, 188 math, decorating an ocean and counting, 190, bug catching and comparing with Curious George.
D then started looking at the Pokemon Handbook with P. They were picking out who their favorite Pokemon is, I even had to join in even though I don't pay attention to the show much. The kids proceeded to have Pokemon training and battles. The kids then followed me to my room while I was putting laundry away. D put Pokemon on TV and played her iPad while P messages his aunt before he watched the show and played on his iPad. P kept asking to make sure he was spelling everything correctly. He does pretty well by himself but has to have it perfect. They stayed up in my room for a while after I left them.
Eventually I started watching Frozen and the kids came and watched with me and ate dinner. The kids then played Skylanders together until D had to jump in the shower, then P played by himself. They ended the night by watching Go, Deigo, Go and having a snack. The kids wanted me to make a tent out of the bed, so now they are in their "tent" watching shows on their iPads before they go to sleep.
