“Hello! My name is Flat Stanley and I come from a 3rd grade class in CA. We read a story about me – It’s a story about how I am accidentally flattened when my bulletin board falls on me while I’m sleeping. It sounds like a tragedy, but I make the most of this dilemma. I’m able to slide under doors, retrieve a lost ring in an outdoor grating, and fly a kite. Best of all, because I am flat, I can easily fit inside an envelope and travel via the postal service – all for the price of a stamp!
Here is where your help is needed to make this learning adventure a success. Please send a memento of my adventure, such as a snapshot of you and me (Stanley), a postcard of your area, or a letter telling our class about my adventure with you. We’d love to hear about your weather, interesting landmarks, or anything else you would like to share with us.
Please return me to my class by May 11, 2012.”
Flat Stanley made it to my apartment in February. He might be the last Stanley to make it back at the classroom, and I might be a total nerd, but it was time well spent.
Come on, “a” snapshot?
