Flat Stanley Writing Project

Connecting with other classrooms has never been easier. With a simple click we can be transported half-way around the world. One project that I do in my classroom that connects classrooms around the world is the Flat Stanley Writing Project.  You can connect directly with the Flat Stanley Website here and search for a partner school.  You will be contacted very quickly (I guarantee) and the collaborative project is born.  I am connecting with a school in NY once again for our FS project.  We created our FS templates, mail them off and waited for our buddies from NY to send theirs. Once received, I assigned each child a FS and they keep a writing journal for 5 days of all their adventures.  I also ask them to take lots of photos of where they have taken their FS. This is also an excellent literacy writing project.

Our Flat Stanleys off to NY!


After our part is complete, we mail back a completed journal and their FS and we, in turn, wait for ours. We culminate the project with a Skype visit so we can see our friends in person and ask each other questions.

If you haven't already done this project, check it out. It really is alot of fun and gives children knowledge of how another student lives in other parts of the world. It is a good idea to read a few of the books beforehand so your children understand the stories.

  1. This sounds like a great idea. I did a flat family project with my kids. It helped them to find out about their families in other areas of the world.

  2. What a neat idea for a family project! Children are always asking about their families and where they are from.
    Thanks much for sharing. I did read your post on your blog - sounds like the families were just as excited as the children to participate!!

  3. The dissertation editing services could correct the grammar, spelling, tone, global writings style, and sentence construction of the PhD dissertation. Hiring a professional editor is convenient for students
