In the Classroom: Verdi the Python

Anne Phillips subbed for Ms. Silver’s Kindergarten class at Burnsville Elementary School. The class has been studying the rainforest, so Anne read Verdi by Janell Cannon (the author of Stellaluna). The students delighted in the antics of this acrobatic python – and then got to make their own! They used card stock, torn tissue paper in various colors and colored pencils. On one side of the card stock they made a collage with the tissue paper. On the other side they created various textures and patterns with the colored pencils. After decorating, they cut a spiral snake out of the cardstock. They made a “vine” crossing the classroom and hung their springy, wiggly snakes from it to greet their teacher when she returned.
