First grade is quite an adjustment for the children. One thing we do to help with this transition is to allow them to have a snack at morning recess. You are welcome to send a snack for your child each day. It needs to be something that he/she can bring in the backpack. One idea is to keep a little plastic container in the backpack and just put a new snack in each evening for the next day. Please do not send items that need to be refrigerated.
