March is Reading Month Activities
Travel the World with Books!
One Book, One School
Flat Stanley’s Worldwide Adventures!
This year to celebrate March is Reading Month, our entire
school will be reading Flat Stanley’s Worldwide Adventures:
The Mount Rushmore Calamity. Our celebration is called One
Book, One School because the entire school is reading the
same book. The Mount Rushmore Calamity is just one book in
a series about Flat Stanley, the boy who was flattened by a
falling bulletin board and his adventures traveling by mail
around the world.
Each student will get a book this year. Our goal is that you
would read this book together at home. The book is for your
family to keep. We hope you enjoy reading together as a
family. The included pacing guide outlines the chapters to be
read each week. Your child’s teacher will also be given a
book to read and discuss in class.
Throughout the month of March, we will have a wide
variety of reading themed activities to participate in at home
and at school. Attached is a calendar of all of the fun
activities we have planned!
Books will be distributed on Friday, February 25, 2022.
February 28 – March 4: Chapters 1 & 2
March 7-11: Chapters 3 & 4
March 14 -18: Chapters 5 & 6
March 21-25: Chapter 7
Flat Stanley loves to travel by mail, he is flat and fits perfectly inside
an envelope. As a family, decorate Flat Stanley however you like! Ask
a friend or family member who lives in another city or state if they
would like to show Stanley all around their town. If they agree, mail
Stanley to them. Have them take pictures with Stanley on all of their
adventures and share them with you and your family. Or take Flat
Stanley all around where you live and keep a journal of the place you
