This week we decided to support the US Postal Services.
We have been talking about Community Helpers and this week we focused on mailmen. Each student wrote a letter to his/her parents. We talked about the different vocabulary words such as: letter, envelope, and stamp. We practiced writing the word "Dear" at the top of the letter.
One afternoon we took a walking fieldtrip to the neighborhood mailbox.We had a lot of fun talking about the process: drop letter in mailbox, mailman picks it up, mailman brings it to the post office, mailman brings to your house.
I am trying out a new slideshow website. Let me know how it works for you!
