I am just between bags and have been throwing a lunch together (totally last minute each morning) right into my backpack.
So, here’s a typical-ish lunch for me…
The cheese and crackers, carrots, and apple are almost always my lunch. Sometimes I take a bit of leftover dinner from the night before instead of the crackers.
Tara also asked some really interesting questions about our lunch routines with our students…it’s always so amazing to read how different all of our schools are, isn’t it?
So, our routine. We have recess first this year, then lunch from 12:20-12:40. Teachers have three duties a week (lunch or recess), so there are two days we actually get a longer block for our own lunches. Otherwise, the teachers’ lunches are the same 20 minutes as the students’. Unless, like today, it rained, snowed, and sleeted briefly (oddly enough, EXACTLY at their recess time) which meant they were inside with me, then I had to take them to lunch and stay in the cafe with them for lunch duty. A loooong 45 minutes and not so quiet lunch for me. :/
We don’t eat lunch with our students…that would be the end of me–joking! A little. The duty teachers watch the rest of the classes.
