Lesson Steps (Lesson content, structure, strategies & Key Questions):

Send the students off in small groups to collect their shoebox and sit at
20min their desk.
Once students have done this explain (using pre-made example):
- Creating a mailbox. Decorate it however you want. Must place
name on the front of the box so all students can see who’s box it
is (otherwise no one will know who to send their letter to – show
this on pre-made box).
- One way we show love to one another is by saying nice/kind
things. We can do this by sending each other ‘warm fuzzy

they want to use to decorate their box.

During this time of decorating, if any child did not have the opportunity to
contribute to the brainstorm, ensure to ask them the same question and
record their answer through anecdotal notes.

10min Once the mailbox has been decorated, place them on the drying racks
(send small groups one at a time). Hand out warm fuzzy template and
ask them to complete a warm fuzzy for the friend on their left (that way
everyone will get a warm fuzzy).

Ensure that they are done anonymously, then get the students to post
them to their friend’s mailbox (send small groups one at a time).

Lesson Closure:(Review lesson objectives with students)

Gather students back to the mat using attention catcher.
Sit in the sharing circle formation.
Ask three students to read the warm fuzzy they received in their mailbox.
Discuss how it makes them feel.
Close with a thankyou prayer:
- Each student will start with “Dear God, Thank you for…”
- Should be aimed around lesson.
- Model to students first then go around the circle.

Transition: (What needs to happen prior to the next lesson?)

Students are to now go out to recess.

Send each faction off one at a time to collect their lunch box and wash
their hands, then go outside.

Example of Parent Letter:

Dear Parents,

This term we are completing a unit on how God wants us to show love to one another. A very simple
yet fundamental way of showing this love is by saying kind words. Therefore, in our lesson we would
love to create our own mailboxes that can be used to send and receive ‘warm fuzzys.’ However, to
make our own mailboxes we need your help! Each child requires their own shoe box and Miss Field
doesn’t quite have enough shoes to supply one for everyone!

We will be creating our mailboxes on the 9th of October, it would be great if we could collect
shoeboxes prior to this date.

Thank you for your help!

Warm regards,

Sarah Field.
