    Flat Stanley has been a beloved character of children’s books since 1964, thanks to Jeff Brown. Generations of children have followed him on his adventures around the world. 2019 marks the 55th year of Flat Stanley and to honor that, Secular Homeschool is hosting a Flat Stanley Contest!

    WHAT? We love Flat Stanley!! How do we sign-up? What do we do?

    For the rest of March we are hosting sign-ups to participate in the Flat Stanley Contest. Fill out this form:

    and enter your name, address and email. It will not be shared with anyone other than SHS Admins. Then, April through June, Flat Stanley and a copy of his original story will make their way to and from each secular family that signed up.

    Once you he arrives at your home, you get to host Flat Stanley in your homeschool for a week before sending him back. While he is visiting, please take a few minutes to make a video of what he got to participate in(choice and content is totally up to you) then submit it to our contest(link to be provided starting in April). At the end of the entry period, all videos will be judged and a winner will be picked! Prize is a Boxed Set of Flat Stanley Adventures. You are also encouraged to take photos and submit on Instagram, tagging SHS #secularhomeschoolflatstanley2019. We will be sharing these as they come in!

    Mailing of the contest Flat Stanley package will occur from our head office in Florida and that is where you will mail the package back to. This ensures that your info remains safe and secure. BONUS: All sign-ups will receive a personal note from me and a Flat Stanley vinyl sticker, just for signing up to participate.

    At this time, this contest is only open to United States participants due to time constraints and mailing costs. But, if you live outside the United States and would like to participate, PLEASE send me a PM either on Secular Homeschool or on our Secular Homeschool Facebook Page.

    A running article will be up on the Secular Homeschool homepage with a map, so we can follow where in the USA he is. Be sure to check in weekly for updates! The Flat Stanley fun doesn’t have to stop there. Check out the Flat Stanley page for ways to incorporate Flat Stanley into your homeschool learning with lots of ideas, lesson plans and adventure fun! Plus check out all the cool places Flat Stanley has been spotted!

    Most important of all, HAVE FUN! We can’t wait to see WHERE in the Secular Homeschool community is Flat Stanley!

    Just like your favorite B Movie, the DITL was SO popular in the past, that we decided to bring it back for 2019!

    This is totally voluntary, of course. But if enough members were willing to share, we will feature 1 PER MONTH on our home page! We can't imagine anything more fun than getting to be a fly on the wall of our members' homes for 24 hours, so the more submissions the better! ...

    That dreaded word TESTING is getting ready to rear its ugly head as we wrap up our school year. Why does one simple word send shudders down our spine? Maybe because as homeschoolers we don’t worry about tests constantly like public schools. ...

Rather, SecularHomeschool.com respects the aptitude of each individual homeschool parent to fully research any curriculum before acquiring it, to ensure that it holistically meets the educational, personal, and philosophical goals of each homeschooler.
