I love the polka dot and turquoise! Pretty sure I found it at TJ Maxx, before school started. I often take things in tupperware, and it is big enough to hold everything.
My class goes to lunch at 11:10. I wait in the cafeteria until they are all through the lunch line, then I am free to leave and head for the staff room. Students eat lunch until 11:35 and then are dismissed to recess until 11:55. We have a staff room and it is a fun group of teachers during the 1st and 2nd grade lunch. I usually eat there 3-4 days of the week. I try and eat in the cafeteria once a week....you learn so much more about some of your students than you do just in the classroom. Usually, once a week one of my chickadees has earned "friendly lunch." They get to pick two friends and eat in the classroom instead of the cafeteria.
One more thing....because I just discovered this bit of inspiration...and I still kinda miss Simon, from American Idol...and I loved Paul Potts shocking Britain's Got Talent audition....
