I love this idea! Good little way to encourage writing and written letters instead of text messages, Facebook, etc. I'd like to have one for myself too so that students could send mail to me!

StoryWalk - The Jolly Postman

While we were at the Visitor Centre I set up several activities outside. One was a StoryWalk. The Jolly Postman by Allan and Janet Ahlberg. There isn't much green space around the centre so I used a clothesline to hang the story on a fence. To expand the idea of mail I set up a mail box with envelopes and pens. They wrote their address on the envelopes and put them in the mailbox. I'll mail them soon. I hope they are surprised when it arrives at their house.
