That is an awesome idea! I taught second grade before moving to first and I really miss Flat Stanley. I elected not to do it with my first graders, because I didn't want to take something away from second grade. Using Gingerbread people would put a different spin on it.

        How fun would it be to set up a twitter account for Flat Stanley (or the gingerbread man) and then have people post tweets of the adventures and things that were seen? I thought of that earlier and I ... more
