Hello! It's me again, Hilary from Second Grade is Out of This World!
So, do you have snack time at your school? In our building it is up to us whether to have a snack time or not. In second grade, we all do. We always ask for "healthy" snacks. Each person has a different interpretation of "healthy" though, so I had kiddos bringing in cookies, candy bars, and even entire meals! Being the snack police got old really fast! Not to mention dealing with the backlash if I didn't let the kiddos have their particular snack for the day. So, this year I implemented a Fruit or Vegetable only snack. I do allow for fruit cups and/or applesauce. This has made my snack time a much happier time in my classroom as the kiddos know if it not a fruit or veggie they can't have it at snack time! This also has helped with allergy worries. At first I was very reluctant, but I haven't had any issues! Hurrah! What do you do at your school? Here is a freebie snack note if you are interested! http://bit.ly/XjfHF8
