Mrs. Reynolds and Mr. Wall's second grade class at Grant Elementary in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, are persuasive.
Jose: You must come to our school. My teacher is a huge fan of yours and now so am I.
Leonardo: If you come, I will make you a cake.
Nathaniel: I'll let you stay at my house.
Romeo: We will pay for your plane ticket if you come.
Salvador: I will give you a lot of my drawings.
Diana (pronounced dee-ana): I will give you a car.
Mariana: I'll buy you a suit.
Sendy: I'll give you paper to draw for us.
Selena: I'll pay for you to stay at a hotel.
Katelyn: I'll buy you a paint set.
Tomie: Well, I DO need a new suit, and I would like a cake. But, I no longer visit schools as I once did. Although I'm only 39 years old, I feel as if I'm 74 years old, and school visits take more energy than I have. Thanks for asking, and offering such great rewards!
