This year as part of our schooling process, we have been reading a funny book called FLAT STANLEY by Jeff Brown. The book is about a young boy named Stanley who is accidently 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 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.
Normally, people send out paper dolls that we call FLAT STANLEY to visit cities all over America and the WORLD.
I am proposing something a bit different. I uploaded a Flat Stanley that my son Noah has colored. I am wondering if anyone would be willing to print one of these off and cut it out and be FLAT STANLEY's "host family"and do a few of the following...
1. Tell us what exciting things FLAT STANLEY saw or did while he was visiting you.
2. Tell us what city, State and Country FLAT STANLEY went to, so we can calculate the number miles FLAT STANLEY travelled in cyber space!
3. Please dress FLAT STANLEY to reflect the season you are in, or an activity that he did or other clothing that would tell us more about where you live.
4. Please e-mail me any photographs that you may take of FLAT STANLEY doing the activities you and your family does.
The project for Noah is completed on November 6. I may do this again after Christmas just to give my children a bit more geography and other skills.
Thank you for considering this project! Scroll down for more projects - this will remain towards the top for a few days!
