In Kindergarten, a different student daily, is responsible for our community snack. This means that approximately once per month, your child will be in charge of snack for our class. I ask that the snack be healthy and simple. Fruit, vegetables, crackers, healthy cereal, pretzels etc. would be great! If you would like to send in a non-perishable snack at the beginning of the month, I will store it in the cupboard until your child's designated snack day. I ask that you send in enough snack for all members of the class (right now we have 22 students). Take a look under the "Classroom Calendar" tab on my homepage to see when your child is scheduled to send in snack. I will also send a hard copy home, which includes 2 months worth of snack dates. If your child is a very fussy eater, I ask that you let us try the different snacks. Many times, students will taste if they see their peers eating, and it is a great way to try new foods. If I notice your child having difficulty with the community snack, I will get in touch with you. :)
Birthdays- We celebrate each child's birthday in the classroom. Celebrations are fun, but simple and involve a special snack of your choice. If you are interested in donating a special storybook to the classroom in honor of your child's birthday, we will read that story together and put a special bookplate in the book as we add it to the classroom library. Please do not feel you must do this, but it is a nice, educational way to celebrate birthdays.
If you have any questions about snack, please contact me :)
