Hey everyone, I am a first year teacher and I am currently writing my classroom handbook. I have debated and debated on snack in my classroom. I am leaning more towards not having snack. We did snack for the first half of the year in my student teaching and it was horrible. We ended up with huge messes, it took way too much time to pass out and eat and the kids were very picky. To add to this, I have just found out I have a child with a wide range of food allergies in my classroom. Is it unheard of to not have snack in a first grade classroom?
