Try to do it on your own!

IXL Math – please continue to practice your math facts! You are doing a great! Our class has answered over 2,500 questions on IXL. When we get back to school everyone will go to the treasure box! Keep up the good work!



We’ve talked a lot about how adjectives make a sentence more interesting by giving details. Here is what I want you to do:

Please read the sentence prompt: My dog ate…

I want you to add adjectives to the prompt to make a more interesting sentence. For example you might start out with “My hungry, brown dog ate…

Below are some ideas but I’d like you to be creative and come up with some of your own. If you want to make up with your own simple sentence and then add adjectives, go for it. I can’t wait to see what you write! Psst…mom and dad, feel free to take a picture of their writing and email it to me or just save it for when we get back to school. Have fun!!


my yellow yo-yo, purple watch, tiny toy, stinky shoes, round basket ball, fuzzy doll, yummy cookies, icky flip-flops, buttery popcorn…You get the idea, right?


Please practice writing upper and lowercase H. Best handwriting please as I’m taking a grade! That should sound familiar to you!!!


Work on Stations of the Cross book. Please do Station 12 – Jesus dies on the cross

Look at Jesus hanging on the cross. He has been there for three hours. He hurts all over. He is still thirsty, but nobody brings Him any water. Jesus does not complain. He prays to His heavenly Father and tells Him that He has finished what had to be done. He bows His head and dies. A soldier runs a spear into Jesus’ side. Blood and water come out – a sign that Jesus gave everything.

Step up close to Jesus. He is dead on the cross. He suffered all this because He wanted to put down death and find a way to give life. He has met death and won the fight with it. But it doesn’t look that way. He hangs there so still, as if death has Him for good. But it doesn’t. Jesus once said He was Life. He told everybody that if they would wait three days after His death, He would show them that Life had won the fight over death. Whisper in you heart, “Jesus, I believe You bring life.”

Dear Jesus…no matter where I am, how long I live or what happens to me, let me always be thankful that You died for me.

Under the “Helpful Links” section of my Blog page I have posted some fun learning links for your child. Check out the link I added yesterday!

  • Daily Routine – If you’re struggling with how your day should look now that the children are home, I’ve added a Sample Daily Schedule. Just a suggestion!


I love all the pictures! Please keep them coming!


I am available for email communication ANYTIME! I will miss seeing your child each day and pray this distance learning will end soon. In the meantime, feel free to have your child email me too if they want to chat.


Please let me know how this first week of distance learning worked for you. I welcome all comments or concerns; the good, the bad, and the ugly (well not so much the ugly!) Please know that I am here for you and your child and want to do what’s best for you and your family over the next few weeks.


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

Question: What is a rabbit’s favorite dance style?

Answer: Hip-Hop!

Lord, Help me to focus on what really matters.

I’m so grateful for another day.

Please help me to keep the spirit of gratitude as I face the ebbs and flows of life;

help me to see the good in the bad and the happy in the sad. Renew my spirit.

In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
