Life Essentials - Success Snacks

My students need life essential healthy snacks such as granola bars, fruit snacks, crackers, and drinks to help them to stay focused and do their very best during the school day.

My Students

"Concentration comes from a combination of confidence and hunger," Arnold Palmer. Every student should have a hunger for knowledge, and not a hunger for food.

I teach at an amazing Title I school in Central Indiana, where over 80% of our students population receive free or reduced priced lunch.

I am the proud teacher of 23 sweet, eager and energetic students. Our kindergarten classes have the last lunch time of the day, so many of my students become hungry halfway through the morning, causing them to lose their focus and confidence.

My Project

My students often get hungry during the morning. I have 23 students who are 5 and 6 years old. We have the last lunch of the day which causes my students to get pretty hungry about halfway through our morning. This hunger causes them to lose focus and dampers their productivity.

My students come to school each day eager to learn, but that can be hard to do on an empty stomach.

Even though I have some parents who sometimes send in a snack, many times I am the one who is providing it. Healthy snacks such as Chex Mix, Granola Bars, Cheez-Its, Nutri Grain bars and Fruit Snacks will be beneficial in helping to keep my students focused on their school work, not their growling bellies. By having the mini water bottles at their tables, it will deter students getting out of their seats frequently to get a drink from the water fountain.

Being able to provide a healthy snack for them each day, will ensure that they will continue to work at the best of their ability.
