Our class is currently participating in the Flat Stanley Project. Each student created their own Stanley and we mailed them across the U.S. to various families. Our hope is to learn all about the different states in which Stanley is visiting. Along with our Stanley we mailed the following letter.
Hi. My name is Flat Stanley. I live in Evansville, Indiana at Resurrection Elementary School. My friends in Mrs. Barth's second grade class just finished reading a story about me called Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown. The story tells all about the time I was crushed by a falling bulletin board. I have enjoyed may adventures since I became flat. Mrs. Barth's class thought it would be fun to send me around the world and learn about all of the different places I visit!
Please send a letter, postcard, pictures, or anything else you can back to my friends at Resurrection to help them learn about where I am visiting. Be as creative as you can.
When I have had a chance to see the sights and visit with you, please send me on to someone else that you know will be a good host for me to visit. Please make sure I don't get lost in the mail. I am hoping to travel all over the United States and even to other countries.
If I am visiting you and it is May 1, 2005 or later, please send me back to my friends at Resurrection Elementary so I can finish the school year with my classmates. Again, thank you so much for taking such good care of me and taking the time to share our adventures with all of my friends in Mrs. Barth's class.
We are very excited to hear from our host families. When we begin to receive mail we will post Stanley's host states as they arrive.
We are receiving mail!
