Lunch time may be a break for most teachers, but for me it is one of the most important times of the day to work with students. From socialization with peers to good manners, fine motor skills, and communication skills, lunch time keeps us very busy. Over the last couple years, I have had many students who struggle with problem behavior at lunch time when their favorite foods aren't an option. I created this lunch choice board so that I could visually show my students what their choices were BEFORE lunch. We go over this during our morning meeting and again, right before we leave the classroom. I have students practice their communication skills by identifying what they want each day for lunch. This has been very successful in helping decrease problem behaviors at lunch time!
