In our unit of Community, we are reading a book called Good-Bye Curtis. It is about a mail carrier in a community that is retiring. Today we wrote real letters in our handwriting groups to our families. Then we addressed envelopes to mail them in. We are learning our addresses so this reinforces this as well. Then we each put them in our class mail box. We carried our mailbox to the "post office" in the high school to be mailed for real. We watched a special machine stamp our letters too. Please check your home mailboxes for these letters. The children are very excited and it is fun for them to learn this process.
