Snack Time Equals Brain Food

My students need snacks! Our kindergarten class eats lunch around 10:45. By the time we make it to our afternoon math lesson, they are tired and hungry. Please consider donating! Thanks!

My Students

Kindergarten is such a fun group to teach! They love school, their friends, their teachers, learning and reading. Most of all they are active. Giving students the opportunity to build relationships and get the wiggles out requires a lot of space and activities.

My hope as a teacher, is that I am able to provide my students with every tool they need to succeed.

This includes food, clothing, exercise equipment, school supplies and activities.

Help me create a love of learning!

My Project

Our Kindergarten classroom eats lunch around 10:45. This is the first lunch of the day and they burn their energy out early. These little minds need to refuel!

We do not have the funds at our school to provide snack, so we need your help!

Math is in the afternoon. Thinking critically takes energy, lots of energy! These little learners need brain food to help refuel their "thought makers" which will help them retain information.

Also on the list are storage tubs to help me keep the snacks organized and safe. I plan to label the tubs for easier access.
