I hope you are enjoying my first blog hop, and even more I hope you join in the fun!
Here is how it will go. I have posted seven different school/fall topics for you to use as blog posts. You can write them for seven days in a row, scattered throughout the month or however you so choose! Here are the topics: first day of school, favorite school supply, teacher who made a difference, apples, a new box of crayons, new friends and what’s in your lunchbox
All I ask is:
- Please copy and post this image with your post
- link back to my blog https://teacherturnedmommyblog.wordpress.com/ so we know who is playing along
- have fun! remember you can take these topics in any direction you want… just use the idea as a jumping off point.
What’s in your lunchbox?
This is my last topic in my blog hop. Thank you to those who played along and those who enjoyed reading my replies.
So… what’s in my lunchbox? While I don’t have lunch at work since I only work part time, I do occasionally bring snack with me to work. I typically will bring myself yogurt, carrots with hummus or cheese.
So, lets talk about the boys instead. Blake and Colby began packing their own lunches when I went back to work. This put Blake as a first grader and Colby as a kindergartner. When they were that age, they used the Sistema lunch cubes. They learned that they had to pack their main item into the large section. Then they packed either fruit or vegetable into one of the small sections and a “junk” in the other section. They packed their lunch after dinner and put the box into the fridge. I would then pack it into their lunchbox.
While the boys no longer use this lunch cube, they do still pack their lunch in a very similar fashion. They have to pack a protein, fruit/veggie and then can have snacks to go with it. They pack their lunch after dinner, put it the fridge and I pack it into the lunch box in the morning.
So, what do you find in their lunches?
Blake– pizza, deli (ham or bologna), chicken tenders, or leftovers for his main item. Apples… only apples… for his fruit or veggies. He takes a half an apple sliced (soak the slices in sprite and it won’t brown). Junk: chips, pretzels, cookies, mini muffins
Colby– uncrustable, cereal with milk, deli ham. Fruit/veggie: whole apple, carrots w/ dressing, grapes, pears. Junk: granola bars/Zbars, chips, pretzels, cookies, popcorn
What is in your lunchbox? Your child’s lunchbox?
