Flat Prekindergartener

Flat Prekindergartener

After a field trip to the Philadelphia Walnut Street Theatre in to watch The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley Jr., which told the story of a young boy who was “flattened” by a bulletin board, Lisa Martin’s prekindergarten class was inspired to create their own versions of having 2D adventures. The children decided they wanted to transform themselves into a “Flat Prekindergartener!” Mrs. Martin and Teaching Assistant Jessica Durdin printed photos of the students, laminated them, cut them out, and asked volunteers within the MFS community to take the Flat Prekindergartener on a journey with them for a day.

Through their Flat Prekindergartener versions of themselves, the students were able to follow a typical day for a staff member of the marketing department, the front desk coordinator, the school psychologist, a first grade teacher, an Upper School Spanish teacher, a Middle School English teacher, and more!

The students loved seeing their Flat Prekindergartener classmates on their various journeys that allowed them to learn more about all the people who work at a three-division school.
