Yesterday I assembled Flat Stanleys with some of the first grade parents at Abbott's school.
"Flat Stanley is the main character in Jeff Brown’s book series. We have brought him to life (well, sort of)! In the book, Stanley Lambchop has all sorts of adventures after he is flattened by a bulletin board. Your child will use their imagination to help create new adventures. Flat Stanley will go visit a family member or dear friend of your child’s choosing for the rest of the month. The job of the host family is to incorporate Stanley into their lives, create new adventures and correspond with the class. These correspondences will add to our conversations about the diversity of families, cultures and lands in our world..." - from the first grade newsletter
