Stanley Saves the Day

October 31, 2006

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.


Flat Stanley Becomes a Kite

October 28, 2006

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)

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.
