Flat Stanley Project Has Begun!
As part of our integrated Reading, Writing, Language, Social Studies, and Mathematics programs, the children in my class at Lenkerville Elementary School have read a funny book called Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown. The book is about a young boy named Stanley who is accidentally squished "as flat as a pancake" when a bulletin board falls on him. Stanley is very, very flat but otherwise fine. The story goes on to tell how Stanley discovers some real advantages to being flat. He can slide under doors, go down into sidewalk grates, and even fold himself up small enough to fit into an envelope and be mailed to California for an exciting vacation.We are sending out Stanley paper dolls that we call FLAT STANLEY, and we are sending them off to visit cities all over America and the WORLD.
