I think this pack contains everything you need to carry out a Flat Friend project and a Flat Stanley weekend project! I created these materials based on the books. I did this with my first graders and it was great. I think it could easily be adapted for other grades, but keep in mind I have only done this with first grade! :)
I have several pages explaining what you need to do in here and I have also included parent letters and a letter to send with your students' flat friend.
