How does a card get to your valentine?
That’s what students in Marty Jones’ preschool class in Carrollton Elementary have been learning in preparation for Valentine’s Day, this Friday. The students, ages 3-5, learned mail must have an address and a stamp before it is taken to the Post Office. The group is now working on learning their addresses.
Students built mail delivery trucks to allow them to pick up mail at the Post Office (in the classroom) and deliver it to their classmates. Some students even dressed the part of the mail delivery driver and, the post office worker and the letter carrier, complete, whose outfit included a mail bag. Valentines will arrive at their destination this week.
Carrollton Schools have preschool classes in Carrollton, Augusta and Dellroy. Jones has 13 students in her morning class and 15 in the afternoon class.
