Nick's class is working on a Flat Stanley project. (They also went to the Flat Stanley musical.) For those not familiar with this, students create a Flat Stanley (a paper cutout of a boy) to mail to someone at a far-off destination. The recipient is asked to take Flat Stanley somewhere unique or fun in relation to their country/state/city/town. Then they are asked to mail Flat Stanley back with an object/picture of said country/state/city/town.
Each student in the class was asked to send their Flat Stanley's to two people. By Thanksgiving, the class will receive their Stanley's and in December, they will learn about his adventures. Nicklas chose to send his Stanley's to my aunt in New York and Mike's cousin in Orlando. He's eagerly anticipating Stanley's return!
