This is called SNACK ATTACK!
Before school your child may deposit up to 2 snacks from their lunchbox into their own SNACK ATTACK pocket which is in our class. The snacks chosen must be either a fruit/vegetable, a wrapped muesli bar or a wrapped/sealed dried food – small plastic containers are ok to use. Your child has been given an individual Snack Attack pocket. To help make this successful please add an extra snack – Healthy – to your child’s lunchbox. FRUIT/VEGETABLES would be a GREAT addition.
The children will be able to eat these snacks DURING class time in the morning when not directly being taught by an adult. WHY? – For many children hunger fatigue takes away from their learning and can cause a loss of concentration. I have trialed such an initiative before, and found that this has been helpful to keep many children focused and aid their learning.
We have been able to trial this initiative due to the goodwill shown by Mrs. Imeke Moore, one of our Room 3 parents, who came to my rescue and designed and made our
SNACK ATTACK class holder. I have attached a photo for you to see. Thank you Imeke!
I’ll keep you all posted as to the successes and challenges of this initiative.
Thank you for your support.
