The other week I received an envelope addressed from one of my nephews. Inside was a letter that read the following.
In school we read a book about a boy who got flattened by a bulletin board. His name is Flat Stanley. He wanted to go on a trip, so his family folded him up and mailed him to California.
I am mailing MY Flat Stanley to YOU! Please take him around with you and write me back telling me the places he visited. I will share Flat Stanley’s adventures with my class when you send him back.
Of course, I was happy to take Flat Stanley on various adventures. I kept forgetting to bring him at first, but made it up during the last few days of the week before mailing him back to my nephew’s class.
Below are some of the activities that we did together. Click on the photos to view their captions.
