Snack and Water Bottle Information
We will have a short snack time in the afternoon. Eating a small snack helps the students retain focus on learning rather than their growing tummies. The district nutrition department does not provide snack, so that responsibility will fall upon us!
In order to efficiently optimize our learning time, I am asking that each child bring his/her own snack. If you would like to donate some snacks to our class collection, I would gladly accept them! Sending snack with your child is certainly optional, but please understand that your child may not like the snack I provide.
Please help your child choose HEALTHY snacks for school. Below are foods suggested for school snacks by the Texas Department of Agriculture. If your child’s snack requires a fork or spoon, please be sure and send that with your child from home.
Texas Department of Agriculture School Snack Recommendations
Low-fat string cheese
Fruit, nut and/or grain trail mixes
Rice cakes or mini rice cakes
Gold fish Crackers
I also encourage all of my students to bring a water bottle filled with WATER each day, especially during the hot weather months. It is very important for students to stay hydrated. Having their personal water bottles in the classroom helps them drink when they need a drink without losing learning time walking to the water fountain. It also helps them stay healthier since they aren’t sharing any germs that might be on the public water fountain. For water bottles in the classroom to work, we all need to follow these guidelines.
Water bottles should have only plain water. Please do not send water bottles with juice or any kind of flavored water.
Students need to come to class with their water bottles already filled. We will not take class time to fill water bottles at the beginning of the day. Students will be able to refill water bottles during the day, if needed.
Students’ water bottles need to be labeled with their name.
Since the students will be able to get drinks as needed during work time, water bottles should have some kind of top that securely fastens.
Following these guidelines should provide a no-hassle, healthy way for our students to stay powered up and hydrated each day.
