    Learning Goals: Literacy, Reading, Writing, Communication, Mutually-Directed Play

      • The class discussed creating their own class post office after observations from a community walk.
      • Guided by the educator, the students decided the features they would have in their post office and the materials needed.
      • The educator provided materials and supported the students in building a post office.
      • The students negotiated roles within the post office to write letters, address envelopes, and deliver mail to their peers’ mailboxes.
      • In the classroom, the post office was placed near the writing centre, so children could access resources (i.e. word wall, alphabet, writing utensils) to support their writing.

    We are the Play Learning Lab, run by Dr. Angela Pyle at the Dr. Eric Jackman Institute of Child Study of the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education/University of Toronto.
