Adventures with Flat Stanley

English Language Arts has been quite adventurous this year! The students in grades 3-6 have been working so hard, they deserved a little extra fun. We read The Adventures of Flat Stanley, which is about a boy who was accidentally flattened by a bulletin board.   Rather  than dwelling on the negative, he decided to make lemons out of lemonade!

So we decided it would be hilarious to create a unique Stanley for each of us, and ship him off to a family member. But first, everyone needed to know how to properly mail their Flat Stanleys. We drafted up a letter that would be sent to a family member along with Stanley.  We practiced the format for writing friendly letters, and nearly perfected our handwriting and typing skills!

After designing our special Stanleys, we walked to the post office to send them on their way!

New Suffolk's post master, Homer, was so excited to see us! He helped each student with paying for their stamps, and mailing them.

Now, all we had to do was wait! The students made wild predictions as to what their Stanleys were doing with their loved ones. But nothing was more exciting for Mrs. Pollina than seeing each students' face when the mail arrived and Mrs. Gizzo brought in their returned Flat Stanley!
