Lunch can be a little overwhelming the first week of school. There will be many lovely lunchroom helpers to aid with food container opening, lunch line navigating and most importantly...encouraging your child to eat.
Lunch in a room full of classmates can be very distracting.
For many this is the first time they have had to eat lunch at a designated time and not just when they are hungry.
Here are a few helpful tips...#1 Make lunch go smoothly is to limit choices. #2 Only pack healthy choices. #4 Number what you would like them to eat first. #5 And finally, use containers they can open independently. #6 School lunch is free. The menu is on the CPS website (link can be found on the Coonley site). Just do not send a lunchbox to school and your child will receive a school lunch. Please email me with any questions.
You can always download another copy of the kindergarten handbook! It is filled with helpful information, sight word lists, reading tips, absence form, school supply info and so much more!
