2 - Stanley Goes to School in New Hampshire!

Flat Stanley was warmly welcomed into the 7th grade at Rye Jr. High School in Rye, NH. Many of the students had remembered the book and still had their own Flat Stanley at home. The students think we should hold a Flat Stanley reunion! What do you think?

Here's a picture of Stanley by our classroom window. We are on the second floor. What can you see out of our window?

We are still having lots of rain! In 3 days, we've had over 7 inches of rain. It's so much rain that it is causing some problems with rivers overflowing, roofs leaking and basements flooding. In our school, the custodians put trash cans in the hallways to catch the water from the leaks in the ceiling.

Sam told us it's nice and warm in Melbourne Beach, Florida. In fact, it's 75ºF. What is the weather where you live?


  1. That is a cool view out your classroom window. Are those oak trees? Looks very cold...

    We have different trees out our window in our part of Florida...many kinds of palm trees and citrus trees. Most of our trees still have green leaves attached.

  2. Hello my name is Djco and I am one of ms. Adams students. The trees here in Rye have just started to bud with leaves that will come out later in the year.

  3. How did you know those are oak trees? You are correct! Most leaves fall off the trees in the winter time here in NH. The oak trees tend to have some leaves that do not always fall off the tree during the winter. These leaves are said to be marcescent, when they whither up but do not fall off the tree.
