The story Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown is about a boy who was flattened by a bulletin board one night. He then goes on many adventures because he is flat. One such adventure involved Stanley visiting a friend across the country traveling by mail. So, our class made our very own Flat Stanley so that we can send him on adventures as well.
We learned how to address an envelope, then carefully placed Flat Stanley inside. It was with a lot of excitement and anticipation that we mailed him before our Spring Recess. The children each placed their Flat Stanley envelope into the mailbox with the utmost care. Now we eagerly wait for his return to our classroom so that we can learn about his experiences while with our friends or families.
