    I don't know about the envelope activity you're thinking of, but I just got the following idea: each envelope is labeled with an address, but no name. Inside the envelope is either the name and/or picture of the student whose adrdess it is. Children play a game by identifying their address and those of there friends.
    We made houses out of squares and rectangles (to practice cutting, gluing and shape identification). I printed up address labels for each student. As I read each label, the children identified their address and got to remove the address label & place it on the house (fine motor skills).
    We then would use identifying those house addresses for all sorts of things like lining up, getting backpacks to go home, taking attendance, table or center assignments, etc. You could do the same with the envelopes! I should mention that I had a class of only 10 (sped) students, so it didn't take very long to go through the whole class. This may not be practical fro a larger class.
