This super fun class will incorporate, reading, writing, math, science, geography, and creativity. The book is about a young boy named Stanley who is accidentally squished “as flat as a pancake” when a bulletin board falls on him. The story goes on to tell how Stanley discovers some real advantages to being flat—ESPECIALLY SINCE HE CAN FIT INTO AN ENVELOPE AND BE MAILED ANY PLACE IN THE WORLD.
We will read the book in class over a period of a few weeks, then make plans to send out our FLAT STANLEYS to locations all over the World. We will track travels on a map and learn about the geography of the location Flat Stanley travels to. The person who gets a FLAT STANLEY “decorates” him in clothes he might wear to reflect the climate and / or activities FLAT STANLEY might see or do there. We will also send out a questionnaire so that we can find out what FLAT STANLEY saw or did in that faraway city, what the climate is like, the distance between that city and ours, and some interesting facts about that city. Then that lucky person sends those facts back to us with the newly dressed FLAT STANLEY!
Note: This class will have some homework, (especially if your child needs help writing), and it will be a part of what we are learning in class. You will need to purchase the Flat Stanley book, but I will send you a link once you sign up for the class. We will also be making a lap journal to incorporate what we have will be learning about. Hope you will come and enjoy the JOURNEYS OF FLAT STANLEY with me!
