Flat Stanley Project

Based on Jeff Brown’s Flat Stanley book illustrated by Tomi Ungerer, Dale Hubert, Grade 3 teacher in London, Ontario began the Flat Stanley Project in 1994. Flat Stanley provides the core for  many literacy activities – drawing, writing, taking photos, sending letters and emails, etc. Similar to penpal activities, children send letters and flat visitors based on Flat Stanley or other characters from the Template Gallery: “it’s as if the sender and the recipient have a mutual friend, and writing becomes easier and more creative.” In 2010, Darren Haas, developed the Flat Stanley, a free app for the iPhone.
