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.

We love that this teacher varied the Flat Teacher versions. It makes for varied responses from the kids.
Use Real Photos
We love this photo version of a Flat Teacher and her template for students uploading their photos.
This is so brilliant for longevity!
Sending them out and waiting for the photos … something to look forward to!
Oh the Feels
The students’ interactions are so sweet!
And Laughter Too
This teacher was surprised to find out who she’d been hanging with all day!
Getting measured with LEGO bricks is a lot easier when you’re small!
