    Flat Stanley
    By MsPropel

    I just inherited a class set of Flat Stanley books from a teacher who won't need them anymore. In the past I have read the book aloud and been on the receiving end of the Flat Stanley project. This year, I'd like to be on the sending end. When my sister did this project in school her teacher had the students send to family or friends who lived far away. Unfortunately, with our population, I'm not thinking we would have many families participate. Because of this, I'm looking for about 20 classrooms to host our Flat Stanleys. I will have each child make their own Stanley and write an introduction letter. Stanley will come with this introduction letter from the student, an instruction letter from me, and a journal for Stanley to write about his adventures in.

    When I hosted in the past, I sent home a letter asking parents if they'd like to participate by hosting Flat Stanley for a night. Then I assigned nights for those students. We would take him on our field trips and I'd have the students write in Stanley's journal about each adventure he went on. I also took him around our hometown and took pictures of Stanley. The class that sent Stanley to us last year was from Louisiana and I assumed it usually gets a little colder here in Pennsylvania. Because it was January/February, I printed out a hat, gloves, and a scarf and taped them onto Stanley so he would stay warm! I also sent him back with some momentos from our town and school.

    I'd like to get all of the Stanleys sent out by the holidays. Then, we'd like him returned by the end of March to be sure you have plenty of time!

    I've attached the letter I sent home to the parents and a few pictures of Flat Stanley around our town and hanging out in our class so you get an idea.

    If you are interested, please PM me with your school address.

    Thank you for your help!
