How can you send 21 students and their journals to Australia for under $5.00? It’s easy-make them Flat Selves!
Our class is so excited to be participating in a literature project with classes around the globe. Thanks to the organizational efforts of Mrs. Murphy in Australia, the students in our class have been involved in reading Flat Stanley books and engaging in relevant activities with the books written by Jeff Brown.
We started out making our flat selves into our likeness after reading the first chapter of the book. Then we created a journal to keep track of our adventures.
After our flat selves were done, they went home to spend some time with family.
Then we had sleepovers with our flat friends and write about the event in our flat journals.
What would you do with a flat friend at your house?
Our flat selves are now bound for Ms. Murphy’s class in Victoria, Australia.
