Story Snack

  • Dear Parents,

     

    Story snack is a wonderful way for you to participate in your child's school experience.  The idea is that you and your child will read a favorite book to the class and bring a simple snack that is related to the story.  The children love to have you visit and are so excited to show you off to their friends!  This is also a great opportunity for grandparents to visit. It is best if the snack is a simple finger food that you and your child can prepare the night before.  

    If you need some story ideas here are a few that have been done in the past:
