Another day with no school, another day where it would be so easy to just blow off morning activities... But I managed to motivate a little and get something going.
It helps that the kids love Superhero Adventure. Normally I try to make Superhero adventure a game in which the kids have to work together to accomplish something, but today I just wanted to take it easy and play with the kids. They surprised me by saying they wanted to be villains this time, however...
I went and got stuff to be a hero from their room:
The kids being villains kind of threw me for a loop with the playing... Was I supposed to let them win to make it more satisfying for them or defeat them so that the good guys win? I wasn't sure. So I just chased them around the house with rubber swords. That seemed to work okay.
SELFGRADE: B-. The kids had fun, but it wasn't really teaching them any real lessons. But then again, kids play to learn and all, so maybe they were learning? Regardless, the kids got to play with me at their level and I got to feel like I wasn't wasting the morning.
