Second Day of Kindergarten

Today went very well. The kindergartners are becoming familiar with the classroom procedures and learning to help run their classroom. It is a fun group.

We got out on bikes today. Lots can ride two wheelers. 

Lots can shoot baskets with a full-size basketball. 

Lots of you have questions about snack. On Monday we will begin having students share snack with their whole class. The calendar will go out in tomorrow's Friday folder. 

Please bring a modest, healthy, and balanced snack for 28 students. At snack we serve a modest amount of food, less than a meal. Healthy means not full of sugar. And balanced means try for some fruit or veggie with protein and/or carbohydrate.

Ideas for veggies:

Carrot sticks, celery sticks, "ants on a log," zucchini, cucumber, fresh edamame soybeans in shell

Ideas for fruit:

Apples, oranges, (8 to 10 fruit is plenty), bananas, grapes, peaches, pears, apricots

Ideas for carbohydrates/protein:

8 sandwiches cut in quarters:

PB & J, Salame & cheese, turkey & swiss, egg salad sandwiches. cheese and crackers

Protein sources:

Yogurt, cheese, salame,
