Our class has been reading the story of Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown. It is a funny story about a boy, Stanley, who has a terrible accident one night while he is sleeping. His bulletin board falls down off his wall and flattens him. Stanley decides that being flat can be fun. He slides under doors, flies a kite and even catches a few burglars in an art museum by posing as a picture of little Bo Peep on the wall! Stanley even mails himself in an envelope to see a friend in California - after all, it was cheaper than and airplane ticket. In the end, Stanley does return to his normal size. His brother Arthur inflates him with a bicycle pump!
We are now sending our Stanley to you. Please write back and tell us what Stanley did at your house. Did he go to school or work with you? To the park? Out to eat? Photos or trinkets (postcards, goodies....) from your state/country are also great to send.
We will be tracking Stanley's journey on our school map to see all of the wonderful places he has visited.. We look forward to hearing all about the fun you had with your new friend.
Thank you for you time and have from!
