After reading Strega Nona, I give my students the opportunity to create their very own Strega Nona Puppet. Have students color and cut out the different parts of Strega Nona. Have them appropriately glue the colored parts to a brown paper bag so that they are able to create a puppet. As an extension, have students identify one character trait to describe Strega Nona on the back of the puppet. For more advanced students, students can also give support from the story to support their character trait. This product includes a picture of my model for you to show to your students!
