Writing 2- An easy way to get children interested in writing is to have them write letters to the teacher and other students. I would use the mailbox for "students of the week" all of the other students would write nice, encouraging notes to that student. It would also be helpful in the way of teaching respect toward other students.
Standard 4.5-4.11 interacting with other educators and contributing to the school. Teachers can help contribute to the school by collecting box tops from parents. What a fun way to collect Box Tops for Education... In a mailbox love it!
