Mrs. Cincilla’s Distance Learning Blog for Monday, March 16, 2020

Dear Parents,

Welcome to distance learning and my daily blog! I will be updating my blog before 9:00 am every day to direct you to the assignments your child should be completing. So, here we go!

Monday, March 16, 2020


Begin Chapter 15 – Calendar and Time

Practice 1: Using a Calendar

Pages 109-112

IXL Math – please continue to practice your math facts!


If you have the reading packet, Paddy and the Giant Potato, please read pages 54-55 and answer questions on pages. 56-57.

If you have the reading packet, It’s Raining, please read page 105 and answer questions on pages 106-107.

If you have the reading packet, Week 19, Day 1, Main Idea and Details, please complete page 119.


Work on Stations of the Cross book. Please do Station 8 – Jesus speaks to the women of Jerusalem.

Story: “The women of Jerusalem, and their children, come out to comfort and thank him. They had seen his compassion and welcomed his words of healing and freedom. He had broken all kinds of special and religious conventions to connect with them. Now they are here to support him. He feels their grief. He suffers, knowing he can’t remain to help them more in this life. He knows the mystery of facing the separation of death.”

Prayer: We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you, because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.


Read Scholastic News, Welcome to Ireland, and answer questions 1-4


Please let your child know that 4H picked up our eggs and incubators last Friday. They will keep them safe until they hatch since we can’t be at school to take care of them. We were sad to see them go but at least we know they are in good hands.


Under the “Helpful Links” section of my Blog page I have posted some fun learning links for your child. They are:

  1. Mystery Science
  2. Scholastic Learn at Home
  3. ABCya Learning Games
  4. FORMED – The Catholic Faith on demand. They have great children’s videos!


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.


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

Knock, Knock

Who’s There?


Irish Who?

Irish you a Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

A Prayer for Peace of Mind

Fortify me with the grace of

Your Holy Spirit and give

Your peace to my soul that I

may be free from all needless anxiety,

solicitude and worry.

Help me to desire always that

which is pleasing and

acceptable to You so that

Your will may be my will.

-St Frances Xavier Cabrini
