Here are today’s assignments:


Chapter 13 – Addition and Subtraction to 40

Lesson 1: Addition with Regrouping

Pages 65-68

When teaching regrouping for example:      14

+ 18

Say: 14 is 1 ten and 4 ones, 18 is 1 ten 8 ones

Step 1: Say: Add the ones. 4 ones + 8 ones = 12 ones. (12 ones is 1 ten 2 ones after regrouping.)

Step 2: Say: Write the 2 in the ones column and the 1 in the tens column above the 1 ten in 14.

Step 3: Say: Add the tens. 1 ten +1 ten+1 ten = 3 tens

Step 4: Write the sum in the tens column

Ask: What is 14 + 18? (32)

The most difficult part of regrouping for children at this age is remembering to put the number, for example a 1, above the number in the tens column and then include it when adding the numbers in the tens column.

Please have your child watch this link on regrouping. It explains regrouping so clearly.

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.

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

Question: What’s the best day of the year to monkey around with your friends?

Answer: Ape-ril Fool’s Day, of course!


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.
