Post Office fun in Preschool!

We've been studying community helpers this week.  Part of our study was visiting a local post office.
After visiting the Post Office, we decided to create our own Post Office in the classroom.  It was a huge success!  The kids had so much fun writing their "letters" and delivering them to their friends and families.  Earlier in the week we had made mail carrier bags out of brown grocery bags.  We'll keep these mailbags for our Valentine's Day celebration!
As you can see our Post Office was a busy place!  Lots of writing, sharing, and language going on!
You can see our mailbags and mail boxes in this picture.
And of course, a post office wouldn't be complete without a sign!

Happy New Year!

Making graham cracker gingerbread houses in the 4's class.

It's been a long time since I last posted! We've been very busy at Coop! We held another successful winter concert right before break. The children worked very hard to learn their songs and they performed beautifully!

The two year old classes went on a field trip to a local post office. They had a great time learning about how a post office works. The three year olds and four year olds will be visiting the post office in January!

Enrollment and open house information for the 2012-2013 school year will be posted soon!
