A member has requested that we set up a private forum for a Flat Stanley exchange. I am setting up a poll to check for the amount of interest in this idea. If you are not familiar with the Flat Stanley project, click here (http://www.flatstanley.com/) for more info. The forum for this exchange would be private and password-protected.

Please respond in the poll if you would be interested in participating in a Flat Stanley exchange at SecularHomeschool.com.

While I've only just learned about Flat Stanley, we'd definitely be interested. I'm just introducing geography concepts to my preschool/kindergartners and I'd really love an opportunity to exchange like this.

We were just reading up on the Flat Stanley project last week. We'd love to join in!

Can he handle a Canadian winter? LOL Yeah, we'd like to do this too, sounds fun!

or a Mexican Summer? Yes he can! ;) I will probably use this opportunity to start geography with the wee ones. Possibly a course in states and countries as well, learning about each place as he travels my kids would enjoy much more than book work.

Thanks for doing the poll! Stanley will love mud season in Maine (mud season - falls between wicked cold and those darn black flies/tourist season).

We did this last year. We were on a pretty big list (40-50?) and we got back 4 via email. It was fun, but be prepared for lost Flats, or families that stop participating. We anticipated that and sent out 4 at a time. Still lost them all. :(

We're in for the Secular Homeschool Flat Stanley!

We would LOVE to participate! We tried this recently on another HS board and it was a disaster - we were so disappointed! this sounds much much more organized though :)

We are heading to Mexico in late April for 2 weeks - I know it is longer than the 1 week time frame, but we'd love to take him with us to Mexico. Stanley could have adventures at various Mayan ruins and cenotes :)

Can I have the password sent to me - please? :)

Could anyone who wants the password do me a favor and use the Contact Us link at the bottom of the page and then click on "Request Flat Stanley Password"? This comes to my email and keeps me from having to go in and private message each individual person. Thanks!!!
