Even if you don’t have any materials to drop off, please follow the scheduled arrival times so I can say goodbye and give a special treat to my last class EVER. I will miss you all so much and would like to at least give an “Air Hug” as you drive through!

Dear Parents,

Easy, easy last week of instruction for all of us! Please do not send any completed work to me. It’s just fun math and completing our Unit 11, Lesson 3 reading. No spelling words either. That being said, here are today’s assignments!


Solve the math problems and then color the picture according to the color chart.


Please log into ConnectEd and go to Unit 11 Lesson 3, Day 1

Read: Henri’s Scissors pages 180-207

Discuss: Comprehension Questions on pages 208-209

Read: Seasick on pages 210-211

Listen to: Sound/Spelling Card 39, er, ir, ur

Big Idea: Who can be an artist?

Essential Question: How was Henri able to continue making art after he stopped painting? In what other ways can people make art?

  • Vocabulary: Review the words that appear in this week’s reading selection.

WRITING: This week we are doing something a little different!

  • What things are on your “bucket list” for this summer? Please write down your list and share it with your family.

This week your child will understand that a parable is a short story that is told to teach a lesson.

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:
