Teachers Are Making Flat Versions of Themselves for Kids To Take on Adventures

The perfect size for mailing.

We all miss our students, and most of them miss us too! To help bridge the distance learning gap, many teachers are sending out Flat Teacher versions of themselves, based on the ever-popular book Flat Stanley.

The Flat Stanley Project was created to encourage schoolchildren to write letters and document their adventures with the Flat Stanley cutout. Many teachers are using this same concept and sending out Adventure sheets to their students as well. Whether you use your Bitmoji or print a photo of yourself, your students will appreciate having you close by. Not sure where to start? Just check out some of our favorite Flat Teachers and how they are being used during quarantine.
