We were going to go swimming this afternoon. And maybe to a playground.

Unfortunately, when we picked Karl up from school, his teachers told me that he seemed like he was coming down with something. They thought he felt a little warm, he didn't eat much, and he spent the last half hour of school lying on a sofa, which is totally unlike him.

So we didn't go swimming. Or to the park.

Instead, Erika spent the afternoon engaged in a wide variety of other learning activities, including:

  • 12 rounds of Rat-a-tat Cat, in which she adds up her own score at the end of each round. I add up the total score at the end, though.
  • A number of pages from a random Kindergarten workbook; at Erika's request, I removed the unused pages that might be of interest to her when we were recycling the rest of the workbook yesterday. This was all really easy stuff for her, but she did read all the directions herself, and one of the exercises involved reading bar graphs and writing down the answers, which is something we haven't done (but she clearly understood from watching Sid the Science Kid or something).
  • Reading a Clifford story out loud to Karl. He wasn't feeling well enough to listen to her read Nate the Great.
  • Watching the rest of Life: Insects.
  • Making observations in our ongoing science experiment on mold, and writing down the results.

Now she's using BrainPOP Jr. on the computer. She seems to be learning about allergies.

All of this is in addition to the full day of school we did this morning while Karl was in preschool!

Karl spent the afternoon lying around on the couch, lying around in his bed, and napping. Poor guy.
