Do you guys remember Flat Stanley? For those that don’t, it is a storybook that centers around Stanley Lambchop, who is flattened by a bulletin board. Being flat, Stanley can now be mailed in an envelope in order to visit friends. It is now a literacy project known as The Flat Stanley Project, which involves students mailing Flat Stanley to other students around the world also participating in the project. The students then have the opportunity to document the adventures they take their Flat Stanley on.
I learned about this story in first grade and I, along with my classmates got to mail Stanley to a place of my choosing. I mailed it to my great aunt who lived in Florida. She sent Stanley back with a sunburn and a $100 bill and I knew I had sent it to the right person! Did you guys participate in The Flat Stanley Project?
