The Big Nate Series by Lincoln Peirce

Donna Kouri is a National Board Certified teacher-librarian. Last month, she hosted author-illustrator Lincoln Peirce, the best-selling author of the Big Nate series. He spent the entire day in her school library. During his visit, he taught six small groups about writing and cartooning.

I asked Donna to complete the following sentence starters using eleven words or fewer.

* When I told my students Lincoln Peirce was coming to our library, they squealed with excitement.

* Lincoln Peirce inspired my students to have confidence in their work. Students left feeling like artists.

*I think Lincoln Peirce should visit your school library because he will keep all students entertained and engaged.

*Lincoln stressed cartooning does not require technical drawing skills. Anyone can do it.

*Kids check out Lincoln’s books because they make them laugh and they can relate to Nate.

*Big Nate: Comix By You is a fun way for students to create their own comics.

*Big Nate Goes for Broke is being carried around school and read by MANY students.

* Mr. Schu, you should have asked me about how he managed to interact with every student during his presentation.
