I just have a few minutes but wanted to write a post asking for my friends in Blog land's help.
I have a co-worker that has a grandson named Jack.
Jack is in the second grade and his class is doing a geography project.
Each student in the class made a "flat" version of themselves to be send around the US and the rest of the world.
I printed Flat Jack (FJ) out and put him on a stick.
I took FJ to Canada and then to St Thomas with me.
I wrote a little tale about where he went and what he did.
Jack's class is competing with another second grade class to see which class can log the most miles.
I am asking anyone out there that might have a few minutes to print out a copy of FJ and take some photos around where you live, write the story and send it to his teacher, Mrs Pipkorn
(I would love a copy too).
Her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
It does not need to be anything too elaborate, just where he "visited" and what he did.
Unfortunately my FJ washed out to sea in St Thomas! LOL
If you can't print it from that just email me at
and I will send you a copy of FJ and the note from his teacher.
So far that I know he has been to Japan, China, Brazil, St Thomas, Canada, the Netherlands, Oklahoma and Michigan.
So if you are willing to help out a wee second grader and help him learn geography and win the contest please let me know!
FJ's travel needs to be finished by May 15th.
All of the miles add up!!
Just so you can see him here he is on the beach
And here he is with Sammy Swan at the swan festival
It was a great conversation starter!
Thanks in advance to anyone that can help!!
