It’s time! Time for another little road trip. South of the border. Yes, that’s right we’re heading into the good ‘ol USA for a week.
David has a week off ( he booked it off for me) and since there is still lots of snow here we thought we’d start driving South!!
PS~ And we have a ‘lil stowaway on this road trip.
Meet Flat Stanley!
( Flat Stanley is a stick character and provides an opportunity for students to make connections with students of other schools who’ve signed up with the project. Students begin by reading the book and becoming acquainted with the story. Then they make paper “Flat Stanleys” imitations of the Stanley Lambchop character and keep a journal for a few days, documenting the places and activities in which Flat Stanley is involved. The Flat Stanley and the journal are mailed to other people who are asked to treat the figure as a visiting guest and add to his journal, then return them both after a period of time. The Flat Stanley Project’s focus is on literacy. It’s so cool!
One of David’s colleagues at work heard we were going to the US on a road trip, and his daughter was really hoping her Flat Stanley could tag along on our adventures… Sure no problem!
And…just to give you an idea what a fun bunch David works with. Another colleague “borrowed” Flat Stanley while she was sitting on David’s desk and with a little “photo editing magic”…”David” showed up inside the picture he has of me on his office desk. lol Too funny!!
