Roll and add/subtract Math game

Hi first grade, 


I hope everyone had a great week! Have you been keeping yourselves busy with the activities that we post? Well....I know the LEDP teachers miss you and have been planning great activities for everyone to enjoy. Here’s a math game you can play with your parents, a sibling or caregiver. 


Roll and add/subtract Math game



-One pair of dice 

-1 pencil

-1 piece of paper 

-clip board (only if you have one)


How to play:


Roll both dice. Count the number of dots on each dice. Then write both numbers on the paper separating them with an addition (+) or subtraction (-) sign followed by an equal (=) sign. Once you have your equation add or subtract both numbers and solve the math problem. Repeat several times until you fill your paper. 


Good luck and Have fun!

Jackie and Karen 😊

Hello first grade


I hope you are all doing well! I was home trying to think of a fun, healthy and yummy activity for you to try with your parents or caregivers. So I came up with....



Smoothie popsicles or cubes





-1 blender


-popsicle mold or ice cube tray





-1 ripe banana


-Ripe Strawberries


-Yogurt (any flavor)


Tip: you can use any fruits of your choice.



Remove the tops of the strawberries then put them into the blender with the banana and yogurt. Blend the ingredients together and pour it into the popsicle mold or ice cube tray. Freeze it for 3-4 hrs. and enjoy!



Please send pictures, I would love to hear if you enjoyed this treat.



Remember to be patient and have fun! 😋

Homemade Puzzle

Hi first graders!
I hope you and your families are all doing well.😊 I thought of a fun activity that you might want to try since it is important that we keep busy and stay active. It’s making your own puzzle! I’m sure that you will enjoy it, especially since you are  all so creative.
Materials you will need:
1. One piece of cardboard (any size you like)
2. 1 pair of scissors
3. Crayons or markers
Draw a picture of something you like on the cardboard using crayons or makers. It can be flowers, a pet or a toy. Then cut the cardboard into 20 or 25 medium size pieces (although you can cut as many pieces as you would like). Once it’s cut, mix the puzzle pieces and then try to put it back together!
This is a great activity to do with your family or caretakers.
Have fun and send pictures!

Hi first graders :) 

Jackie, Allison and I miss you all so much.   We hope you are keeping busy at home with your families, but more importantly, staying healthy.  We have been thinking of some activities for you to do at home that may be fun, even though we can't be together in LEDP.   
We enjoy sharing science experiments with you during our afternoons in LEDP. As you remember, we've made a snowstorm in a jar, a Hurricane and a galaxy.    Today, let's "FLOAT MY BOAT".   
The materials you need are:
~deep bowl, or pot with water
~aluminum foil
~pennies, or marbles, or cubes 
Before you begin, make sure parents allow you to experiment.  
  1. Directions:

    1. Shape a piece of aluminum foil into a boat shape.

    2. Float the foil on water.

    3. Add pennies until the boat sinks.

    4. Count the number of pennies the boat held.

    5. With a new sheet of foil, redesign the boat  and repeat test.

    6. Record the number of pennies held and ask mom/dad to take a picture with you and the boat and send to LEDP.

      Have Fun and we can't wait to see the final products.    I'll send along another fun activity on Wednesday .  

Karen, Jackie and Alison
