Every year, I send home inviting students to decorate a “mailbox” and write cards for their classmates.
This is as an opportunity for students to practice writing letters. We also use this activity to discuss the career of postal workers.
In addition to this, it’s also a fun way to parents to get involved. They get to help their child express their creativity.
I encourage families to use materials from home instead of feeling pressured to go out and buy things.
I also make sure to offer supplies to my students who may not have the means to create their box and cards at home.
On Valentine’s Day, my students place their mailbox on their desks and walk around delivering their cards to their peers. They love to marvel at each other’s handiwork and enjoy look through their goodies afterwards!
