Flat Stanley

We are starting our Flat Stanley project over spring break. Please try to take a quick photo of your child with their Flat Stanley and email it to me. We plan to glue this photos to their journal entry they will complete over break. The journal entry may be embellished or creative! The students can turn in their journal entry when they return to school after break. Thanks for your help!
