Dear Mr. Peirce,
I just wanted to offer a quick hello and let you know that Shady Grove kids (and Wissahickon Middle School kids) are continuing to push for Big Nate in the Philadelphia Inquirer. We made sure we had a "get out the vote" effort through an email blast and letters home to our original 50 letter writers when Big Nate became one of the "Show Down" nominees.
We are hoping to see Big Nate in the final Show Down soon. And we'll be sure to vote again. In the meantime, my students are going crazy over On a Roll - I have a few copies that I can't keep in the reading room. It's getting checked out constantly - and these are reluctant readers, you know. I thought it was great, too!
Attached is a photo of our Don't Wait, Read Big Nate board outside my room. You can see that we've already done a fun math activity with Nate and that I post strips for passers-by to enjoy.
All the best,
Shady Grove Elementary School
