A little guy in my first grade classroom was headed out to recess with his lunch in hand. Quickly about 20 other classmates told on him... I mean reminded him that his lunch was supposed to go in the lunch bucket.
I met him at the door and told him I would put his sack into the lunch bucket and he could pick it up in the cafeteria.
I don't know what made me peek into his lunch, but I did, and I could not believe my eyes!
His ENTIRE lunch consisted of one Diet Coke and 18 large marshmallows. Go figure.
Being the "mean" teacher I am, I told him he would need to purchase a hot lunch and that I would put his "snack" into his backpack for an after school snack.
