Today we kicked off our Post Office/Writing theme and started off by talking about some of the key vocabulary words at our word wall pocket chart. Then we went on to a Mimio lesson I put together last week, where the class learned the parts of an envelope and a basic what you need to do in order to get something sent through the mail. Today my firsties learned about a return address, mailing address, where the stamp goes and the postmark. Tomorrow we plan to review the parts of an envelope by doing a cut and paste activity that is simialr to the drag and drop Mimio activity (see below) and then get them started on learning their own address and how to write that.
This set includes:
mailbox, mailman, mailbag, mail truck, letter, envelope, deliver, stamp, postmark, post office, mail drop, bar code, address, return address, mailing address, postcard, heading, greeting, body, closing, signature, write, send, sort
You can find it HERE at my TPT store.
