Bon Voyage Flat Stanley!

We finished reading the novel “Flat Stanley”, where a boy becomes flattened by a bulletin board in his bedroom. Flat Stanley goes on several adventures while being flat, but in the end he misses being a regular boy. Fortunately, his brother Arthur pumps Stanley up with a bike pump and Stanley is back to his original self. In Art each student made a Flat Stanley or Flat Sarah. They will be mailed to a person each student has chosen, such as grandma and grandpa, a cousin, close aunt, good friend, etc. 3L looks forward to the safe return of their puppet and learning about the different communities that Flat Stanley and Flat Sarah visit.

Mission Statement

In our Health class we brainstormed together what we would want our classroom to look like and sound like. We decided we would synergize together as a class to be leaders, learners, and friends for each other. Then we came up with qualities of a leader, learner, and friend. Finally, we wrote our class promise and each of us will do our best to follow it, so that we will have a great year learning and having fun in Grade 3!
