This is an exciting opportunity. The grade 3-4 class taught by Mr. Hubert and Ms. Moss in London, Ontario, Canada, are going to be corresponding through this blog with Mrs. Wood’s class in South Australia.
Here in London, Ontario on February 20, 2010, the ground is covered with snow and it’s – 8 degrees Celsius. This is a picture of a fountain at the fork of the Thames River not too far from our school.
Stanley wanted to catch this tram
I took Stanley around Melbourne, and the Melbourne Trams are one of the most iconic parts of this lovely city.
We needed to find him a nice hat, and show him some of Melbourne’s street art. The whole story of his second day is at this link, this time written by the flat one himself.
Stanley among the leaves
Stanley turned up in my letter box on the 6th January. We were very excited, because we had been waiting for him for ages ! He came from Jaden in Connecticut, whom we met back in 2005.
We are in the middle of a summer heatwave, and Stanley learned about always wearing a hat, and grey water. I am a little worried that he might be too hot in his smart suit.
I wrote a letter to Jaden with some pictures in, which you can read at this site. Safe for children, no identifying information unless you know where the one-eared spaniel lives 🙂
Flat Stanley and an Australian Goanna
Here is Flat Stanley pointing to a Goanna ( a large friendly lizard), who is climbing a tree. The Goanna tries to look just like the bark of the tree, so he won’t be easy to see. I hope you can see him.
Perth and Karrath, Australia
I was sent Flat Stanley by Ciara Forde. He has travelled around Perth with me and also to Karratha so he has travelled along way. Here are his pictures.
Hello Mr Hubert’s Class
We would like to say hello and say a BIG Thank you for sending your Flat Stanley’s to Perth Western Australia to visit us.
Today Stanley met all the students in Year 2 at Mt Hawthorn Junior Primary School; we are all very excited and hope he will have a great time at our school.
It was very hot here in Perth today, around 27 degree’s and Stanley got very tired in the afternoon after Phys Ed… We were doing skipping and Stanley had a few problems with the skipping rope.
Also, Stanley helped us make our own Flat Stanley’s in Art. We have included a picture of our Flat Stanley’s for you to look at.
We will be in touch really soon with all the exciting news about what your Stanley has been up to. Your Stanley’s will visit everyone in our class homes this week, so the journals should be really exciting.
We can’t wait to send our Stanley’s to you for a visit
Best Wishes and Goodbye for Now
Mrs Caratti, Miss Stark, Mrs Emery and the Year 2 class at MHJPS
We went property hunting with Stan the other day. We found him the perfect house. (He is tired of living with us!)
See Stan in the chair? No…? Well here he is….
Aren’t the paper flowers lovely?
Like every home in Australia, there is a clothes line! Here is Stan with his new paper clothes!
