Use this kit to turn your housekeeping center into a post office - includes a special Valentine-themed option! Allow your students to use their imaginations when you create a child-sized mailbox (directions and label included), mail bag and employee hats. Students can write letters to one another with postcards and writing paper, and ship packages using shipping labels.
This kit includes:
• wall decorations
• wall signs (open/closed/hours)
• writing paper
• name tags
• role play cards
• cover and pages for 2 class books
• book list
• teacher tips
Not only will your students practice their social skills and organizational skills, they will also have the opportunity to apply academics as they play:
*reading the signs, rules, cards, and notes from friends
*writing cards and notes to friends
*sorting mail by size
I have also added suggestions for creating and organizing your dramatic play area in ways that will help students to be independent while using it and during clean-up! A key part of this organization is shelf labels with words and pictures - indicating where to place the post office materials.
Everything in this kit will help your dramatic play post office run smoothly, while encouraging your students to extend the learning they are already doing in your classroom!
