I noticed that Tara from 4th Grade Frolics was having a lunch box linky party (and giveaway). I've never joined a lunchbox linky before, it's such a unique linky,  I just had to join!   My lunch box is from Thirty One Gifts.  My friend, Blair, is a consultant and hooks me up anytime I want need a new bag.{Click here to see her Thirty One website}  This is my lunc h box! Isn't it cute? Its the new thermal drawstring style in such a cute paisley floral print.
At 12:10 I drop off my little froggies in the cafeteria and go to the teacher's lounge to eat my lunch.  I usually pack left overs from dinner the night before, or sometimes a frozen meal or even a sandwich and chips...... always with something sweet.  My 4th grade team eats in the teacher's lounge as well...... we are such goof balls that we usually laugh until we cry!  I go pick up my kiddos at 12:40.  In Texas its the law that teachers get a 30 minute lunch break but by the time we drop off and pick up we are down to about 20ish minutes.   In my prize box I have "coupons"  I made through VistaPrint{click here to see them} that students can get to eat lunch with me so on those days I will eat in my classroom with who ever turns in the cards.  Check out Tara's linky to see other lunch boxes and read what other FABULOUS teachers do during their lunch break or better yet click on the pic below to join Tara's linky party!

  2. Hi! I found your blog through the linky party! (I'm linking up tomorrow). I'm also your newest follower! I'm glad you shared your idea about coupons for lunch in the classroom. My kiddos LOVE eating lunch in the classroom.....but I've never thought of making coupons for it! Awesome! I also checked out your Vista Print goodies...lots of great ideas! Thanks!
