As a teacher in a low-income, high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Many of them are being raised in single parent households. I teach at a Title I school in Virginia where 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.
My students participate in a full-day, high-quality instructional program for preschool students identified as at risk for early academic challenges.
In my classroom we work to give these students the best possible start so that they will be successful in kindergarten and beyond. My students are loving, inquisitive, and active. They like to move and love praise.
My school is 100% free lunch and breakfast. The students get hungry throughout our long school day.
These healthy snacks and drinks will help keep their bellies full and their minds focused on learning.
It is a long school day for my PreK students and many families in my class can not afford to send a daily snack for their child. Snacks such as Goldfish, Sun chips, Rice Krispie treats, pineapple bits, squeeze fruits and veggies, Animal Crackers, and peanut butter filled pretzels will provide variety while allowing the students to soothe their grumbling bellies. The spoons will allow my students to eat the pineapple tibits. The waters will help quench their thirst and the wipes will allow us to make sure their tables are clean before and after they eat. I am want them to have snacks from now till the end of the school year.
By providing for my students’ basic needs they can focus on learning.
