Here are today’s assignments:


Chapter 13 – Addition and Subtraction to 40

Lesson 1: Addition without Regrouping

Pages 61-64

Please Note: It appears that our Google Classroom is not working the way that we had hoped because you cannot easily print pages. Therefore, I will email you the math chapters weekly starting with Chapter 13 today. You can email me the completed math pages daily or submit them all to me on Friday. I am happy to accept just the answers on a piece of paper or the scanned math pages. You can also take a picture and send it to me. It’s totally up to you! This week we will only complete pages 61-76 in Chapter 13. We WILL NOT be completing pages 77-88 as I will assign and email you “Chapter 13 Extra Practice” pages next week.

IXL Math – please continue to practice your math facts! You are doing FANTASTIC! Our class has now answered 10,000 questions on IXL!!


Please log into ConnectEd and go to Unit 9, Lesson 3, Day 1

Reading: Your child can read or listen to the story, “America is…” Then click on the “Home Connection” document and discuss the following:

  • Review the Big Idea: What does it mean to be patriotic?
  • Ask and discuss: What does America mean to you?
  • Review the Vocabulary Words – freedom, glimmer, horizons, miners, nation, skyscrapers, tribes, vast
  • Review the following sounds and spellings – long a sound spelled a, a_e, ai, _ay and short a sound spelled a. I have also posted the spelling words on Spelling City for extra practice.
  • Under the Language Arts section you do not need to do the Writing Activity. Please discuss the Grammar section with your child about how to identify future-tense verbs. Future tense verbs show action that will happen in the future. They are formed by adding the word will before the verb. Have your child say or write two sentences using the future tense about what he or she will do this weekend.

Reading: Your child can read or listen to the First Reader story, “A Trip to Peru.”

Mrs. Burkholder has asked that you complete the following:

America (My Country Tis of Thee) – Go to:

  • Students can listen to the song, and then when they feel comfortable they can sing along with the video
  • Explain to the students that this song is an American Patriotic song, which was written in 1831.
  • Discuss the meaning of the word “Patriotic”


  • Wednesday – In the spring…pdf. page 1
  • Friday – Walking in the rain…pdf. page 2

I will also email you the April Journals and you can just find the page and your child can use the pictures to help them write a story. Again, you don’t need to print the actually writing pages, as I am happy to accept their writing on just plain paper. Feel free to take a picture and email it to me.


Read the story about how Jesus forgives and heals a paralyzed man.

Activity: color and cut the retelling props to retell the story to a family member

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

Question: Why is everyone so tired on April 1?

Answer: Because they’ve just finished a long March!


Lord, I don’t know what lay before me today, but I commit it all to you.

Please give me strength and courage to get through the joys, challenges and happenings of the day.

I thank you for my life and for all that I have; I commit this day to you.

No matter what happens, I know you have me in the palm of your hand.

In Jesus’ name I pray.
