flat leah

Have you ever heard of Flat Stanley?

If not, that's okay because I hadn't heard about him until last semester when I was spending three weeks in a Kindergarten Classroom. If you have heard about him, then you know that Flat Stanley is a children's storybook about a boy named Stanley who turns into a paper doll and visits his friends via envelope. 

Flat Stanley is also an elementary school project where the students read about Flat Stanley and then send a paper version of him to their family members or other students living in a different part of the world. The person who receives Flat Stanley takes him everywhere they go and takes pictures.
After a few days or so of this, the pictures and a letter are sent back to the student. In the Kindergarten class where I observed, the students made a poster and shared it with the class. Flat Stanley went to Texas, Idaho, Washington, and even China!

Alright. You're probably wondering what this has to do with me. Well... my good friend Allissa just got back from visiting my other good friend Meggie in the Caribbean. I was so sad I couldn't tag along, that I came up with a genius idea... Flat Leah. And Allissa was great enough to go along with it.
