I met Flat Stanley when I was in first grade. Instead of sending him away to a friend, he got to spend Spring Break with me and my family. When I met him we spent all 9 days of spring break together.
I am a second grade teacher in Palatine,IL (25 mi. W of Chicago). My daughter’s 3rd grade class did a FS journal activity this spring. My kindergarten daughter felt left out, so we made a FS and sent him to our cousin in Urbana, IL (home of U of I). They visited Flatville, IL (40 miles or so from Urbana). Attached is a photo of Stanley in Flatville, IL.
