So I am planning to have 2 snack times in the morning to help keep the kids well fueled and hydrated. One small snack at 9:45am, and the second small snack at 11:30am, right after recess. I think one snack at 10am will not get us thru until lunch at 12:45. Last year it was tough to have them even wait until 12:10pm!!!
The snack breaks will be about 10 minutes long, so as not to take away too much instructional time. I encourage you to send water bottles for the kids to keep in our classroom (no need to send back and forth). September is HOT and Pond Cove has a BRAND NEW water bottle water fountain with cool filtered water right near our classroom in the lobby, yay yay yay!
I will help the kids save their snacks for our second snack time, so that they have some left to eat at 11:30.
As always, please let me know if you have any questions at all. I am aware that this will be an extra cost to your family, so please know that we can help provide extra snacks if this is in any way a hardship. Just shoot me a quick email if I can help!
