Here are today’s assignments:

Asking a favor…could you please make sure your child puts their name on every page of work? Thank you so much!!


Chapter 13 – Addition and Subtraction to 40

Lesson 4: Subtraction with Regrouping

Pages 73-76

Subtraction with regrouping is very difficult for children this age so a lot of patience will be required on your part. I hope the following links will give them a better understanding of regrouping. I would suggest watching the videos before doing pages 73-76. I feel just awful that we weren’t able to begin regrouping while in school. Thank you so much for being such great teachers for your children!

Subtraction rap for kids:

More on the floor? Go next door and borrow ten more.

We have a poet and we didn’t even know it! Julia entered a poetry contest at Longmont Dairy and came in 2nd place for her age group (K-2)! WAY TO GO JULIA! I just had to share it with you!


When Rooster Crows

By Julia

When the rooster crows the farm knows it’s time to go

The farmer goes to mow the lawn but first he has to put his overalls and boots on

And then he sees a train go by and it toots

Dog is hiding in the boots

Get him, have some tea and now don’t be late for more working!

At night maybe we can roast some s’mores

Ok, but first let’s do the chores

Horse spits out the apple cores

Now horse is crying what’s the MATTER!

False Alarm what a clatter

Close to bedtime now

Get in bed, read a book

Sing a song and sleep all night

Rooster wakes

Oh no I’m late!

Throw breakfast on a plat

Mrs. Burkholder has asked that you complete the following: This is OPTIONAL.

You’re a Grand Old Flag

  • Students can listen to the song, and then when they feel comfortable they can sing along with the video
  • Discuss the American flag including the number of stripes and stars and the meaning behind all the parts of the flag
  • Students can use red, white, and blue streamers during different parts in the song, to move to the beat
  • Students can keep the beat by marching in place, or pat/clapping the beat

After discussing with Mrs. DeWolfe, it has been decided that your individual sign-off sheet will be sufficient for recording your child/ren’s physical activity! Thank you for understanding and hopefully this will be one less thing for you to worry about.


On YouTube with Mrs. Espinosa! You can find the daily links on Mrs. Espinosa’s blog at


This week Mrs. Poniatowski will be teaching Lesson 17 – Introduction to Problem Solving Steps. Please go to: to watch the lesson.


I will be sending out another Zoom meeting link for next Thursday, April 9th at 10:00. Both classes will be together (oh boy!) and Mrs. Baker is going to read a story, The Bread of Life, Celebrating of the Eucharist.

After we return from spring break, I will be scheduling regular Zoom meetings for every Tuesday beginning April 21 at 11:00. I will also be scheduling “office hours” every Friday beginning April 24 from 11:00 -12:00. All Zoom meetings are certainly optional on your part but I do look forward to seeing all my little friends. The Friday office hours are just for the kids to pop in and out and chat with me one-on-one or with a small group. It’s also a great time to ask me any questions about the assigned classwork. I’m happy to hear some reading too!


I love all the pictures! Please keep them coming!


I am available for email communication ANYTIME!


First graders (and Mrs. Cincilla) just love funny jokes and riddles! Give this one a try:
