Flat Stanley Has Arrived!

As a class project a few weeks ago Jake brought home a "Flat Stanley" this was from story that he read with his Kindergarten class. (In case you don't know the story, it is the story of a boy who is flattened by a bulletin board and all the adventures he goes on now that he is flat!

Jake was told to mail his out to a family member of his choice that lived somewhere, other than Michigan. So Jake decided to mail his to is Aunt Mary and Uncle Scott in Florida! I knew they would have fun with this project and the pictures prove they did just that!

After a couple of weeks Flat Stanley returned in a large yellow envelope and Jake could hardly contain his excitement to open it and see what was inside (I made him though, I had to grab my camera!)

Once we opened it up Jake found his very own special copy of Flat Stanley so he can read the story any time he wants!

Next he found a book with photos describing all the wonderful adventures that Flat Stanley had. He even stopped at FSU (Flat Stanley University!) It was fun reading all about what he did! Uncle Scott and Ethan even joined in the fun!

Jake even recieved some letters from the students in Aunt Mary's classes. Jake was amazed as we read these that some of the kids had never seen snow!! It was great fun, and the class enjoyed these as well. Some of his classmates had never been to Florida and learned a lot about what makes it a great place to visit! (Besides that there are some AWESOME family members that live there!!)

Overall this was such a fun project! Emmah wants to do one of her own now and is reading the book herself! I know this has made some great memories for my kids!! Thanks Fowlers!! You guys ROCK!!
