What do you have your students do while eating snack? When I sub, it seems like the kids are usually doing independent reading while eating snack. It seems like a good use of time but I've noticed that it doesn't seem to be teaching good eating habits. Their mind is not on what they are eating or how much they just ate. It seems like the popular thing for kids to have for snack is a mega container of fish crackers. It's convenient because then the parents don't have to pack a snack everyday but it seems like a way to really overeat. The kids are busy reading and have no idea of how much they just ate. Also in 4th or 5th grade, sometimes the kids are reading around 30 minutes long. That means that the kids are munching for about that long without thinking about what they are doing. What do other classes do while having snack? Is it worth the time spent to just have them eat snack without doing anything else?
