Refresher- I teach first grade in a very needy school.
Every year I do a "Flat Stanley" project after we read the book. I buddy each student in my class up with a friend or family member of mine across the country. My first graders write a letter, decorate a Flat Stanley, and take a photograph of themselves. I them mail their letters across the country. My friends and family "take in" the Stanleys and document what they did with him. After some adventures, the Stanleys are mailed back to our classroom. It is always a highlight for my students and me!
This year has been fantastic.
We have received 13 back so far. Our Stanleys have traveled to California, Washington, Colorado, Wisconsin, Texas, Montana, South Dakota, Ohio, Florida, Tucson and even Australia! I will keep you posted when we get more back.
My dad even took a Stanley with him to the Superbowl a couple of weeks ago. He got Kurt Warner (AZ Cardinals quarterback) to take a picture with the Stanley. Pretty amazing , huh?
I have the most amazing friends and family! Love you all!
