This week we have been learning about the job of a Mail Carrier. We read How it Happens at the Post Office by Dawn Federick. The book is really wordy for the preschool child but the illustrations are fantastic. We browsed through the book and discussed the various machines and people that involved in getting the mail to our homes. The children enjoyed the book and learned quite a bit of information. I think this book does a great job of getting the childrens' interest in the process of mail and is the best book I came across explaining what happens at the post office if you can't actually take a field trip there.
The supplies. Looking back on the photos I realized I didn't take the pictures I wanted to show the step by step process of their craft.
Pictures of community helpers they colored and cut.
The back of the cards.
The mail bag. The child laces the bag and then I staple the blue ribbon.
