Teaching Students Their Address Worksheets!

Technology is awesome and makes our lives so much easier, right? We can quickly tap a button and call someone or look up an address with the swipe of a finger! But the flip side of that incredible technology is that we’re becoming lazy! A simple thing like learning an address is becoming a thing of the past.

We no longer need to memorize important phone numbers or addresses. And sadly, it’s trickling down to our children.

To help my students learn this important life skill, we started writing letters to each other. Not only are they learning addresses, but they’re also learning the proper way to write a letter and address it. How’s that for sneaking in some skills!?

How to Teach Students & Kids to Learn Their Address

To begin, I asked our secretary to print out each child’s address for me. Then, we walked through writing each child’s address onto their “page” in the address book. In the pack, I’ve also included directions for asking parents to help their children write their addresses together.

Once everyone completed their page {with the proper capitals, spelling, and spacing!} I bound the addresses into the Classroom Address Book.

From there, students were able to write letters and address their letters to classroom friends.

Over time, students eventually learn their addresses {as well as many classmates’ addresses, too!} This activity is the perfect addition to our Work on Writing block in Daily 5! Kids can’t get enough letter writing and it’s definitely a crowd favorite!
