* We've Got Mail

This is our class "Motivation Mailbox." Our teacher made it out of a real mailbox. She painted it and put school stickers on it.

The mailbox is on a shelf in our classroom. It has a red flag on it. Sometimes the red flat is up, and sometimes it is down. If the flag is down, the mailbox is empty. If the flat is up, the mailbox has something in it.

We get very excited when the red flag is up because we know "We've got mail!" It is fun to open the box and see what is inside. These are just some of the things we have found in our mailbox:
* A letter from our teacher
* A letter from a friend
* A special book
* A music CD or learning DVD

* A class rule that we need to be reminded of
* Praise notes
* All about us pages
* A treat!
* An item that we get to talk or learn about (clocks, coins, etc.)
