Do your children know how to properly address an envelope?
While my kiddos were taught this skill at a young age, they just don’t get much practice and often forget the proper components and structure. So, why not take a moment and review this skill while there are plenty of envelopes to address?
Addressing an Envelope:
There are three parts to addressing an envelope:
- Return Address
- Mailing Address
- Postage Stamp
In order for a person to receive your letter, you must follow these rules when addressing an envelope.
Return Address: The return address goes in the upper-left corner of the front of the envelope and includes the following:
- Name of the writer of the letter
boxor street address of the writer
- City, state, and zip code of the writer
Mailing Address: The mailing address goes in the center of the envelope and includes the following:
- Full name of the person receiving the letter
boxor street address of the person
- City, state, and zip code of the person
Postage Stamp: The postage stamp goes in the upper-right corner of the envelope.
