Today we read chapter 4. Here is how Seth S., Daniel, Adrienne, Connor and Seth B. summarized the main ideas of chapter 4.
The next day Mr. Dart was gloomy because a painting was stolen from the museum. The sneak thieves were Max and Luther and they were good thieves too. Stanley had an idea by dressing like a shepherdess and climbing into a picture frame to catch the thieves. The thieves got into a museum and tried to steal the expensive painting and Stanley yelled from the picture. The thieves got caught by Stanley.

Abbey and Michael write their thoughts on chapter 3:
Stanley and Arthur were at the park and Arthur wanted to fly a kite. Stanley found some string and tied it to himself. Stanley became a human kite. (Abbey)
When Arthur was eating a hotdog, Stanley got tanlgled in a tree. Mrs. Lambchop told Stanley to be nicer because Arthur was jealous. (Michael)
After reading this chapter, we made kites in class. The kites gave a summary of chapter 3.
We also received large pieces of paper. Now we can make Flat People and send these Flat People to different states just like Stanley got put in an envelope and was mailed to California.

Notes from a third grader about chapter 2:
In chapter two Mrs.Lambchop dropped her ring in the grating and Stanley slid through the grating and got her ring. Stanley was invited to California but his parents couldn’t afford it, so they airmailed him to California in an envelope.

The third graders cheered! Why? I got the Flat Stanley books out and said today we start to read! Wow, what enthusiasm.
We read chapter one and found out how Stanley got flat. Hear how one student summarized the first chapter:
Breakfast was ready and Arthur called his mom and dad. When they came, they found Stanley was flat because an enormous bulletin board fell on him. by Mitchell
Stay tuned. What happens to Stanley?
