Our Flat Stanley Adventure Exchange

March 22, 2011

Our Flat Stanley Adventure Exchange has come to an end.  For the past several weeks, we were host to a visiting Flat Stanley.  My son and I enjoyed reading the original Flat Stanley book, and have many more in the Adventure series to read.  We exchanged Flat Stanleys with a boy in Georgia.  His Flat Stanley went to school and karate with my son.  He also played football with us and the Wii.  Oh, and he read along with us as we read about the original Flat Stanley’s adventures.  We had a blast with this activity and want to thank Trina from Book Loving Boys for putting this together to begin with!

Check out our adventures below:

“We-View” Wednesday: The Flat Stanley Adventure Exchange

February 16, 2011

Welcome to “We-View” Wednesday!  After months off, I’ve decided to bring back this feature.  My son is in second grade and is a fluent reader now.  We still read together daily and I thought it would benefit him to summarize (sometimes orally, sometimes written) books that we read.   At the same time you all will become familiar with books kids his age may like to read.   I hope you will join us!  Click here to read about the original intent of “We-View” Wednesday.

A few changes:

  • This will become a monthly feature instead of a weekly feature.  I will post “we-views” on the third Wednesday of every month.
  • I’m still learning different aspects to blogging and trying to become familiar with linky features.  I may eventually make this a linky, but for now, if you would like to join this feature, please email me at  dlittle {at} linkstoliteracy {dot} com by the Sunday before the third Wednesday of the month with your “we-view”.  I would love to be able to post multiple book “we-views” of different aged children.  Please make sure to include your blog address so that others can check you out, too!

Here is our latest “we-view”

This month’s “we-view” is a little different.  We haven’t read the book yet!  Instead, I wanted to let you know about this fun, cool Flat Stanley Adventure Exchange that Trina from Book Loving Boys began.  My son and I signed up for it and through it we will read one or two Flat Stanley books together.  Next month, we’ll actually “we-view” one of them.

If you are interested in joining the Flat Stanley Adventure Exchange, please check it out!  I think it will be a fun way to motivate kids to read, and to encourage us as parents to continue to read with our children even when they are able to read independently.  My son and I are so excited and can’t wait to “meet” our exchange partner.
