Children enjoy thinking up describing words for this snake and writing them along its wiggly body. The fun cancels out any anxieties about writing, and the direct link between word and picture brings out the meaning for them. The picture is fun to colour, too - around the words. Best for approx. ages 4-7 (KS1 or Kindergarten). Encourage words like: long, wiggly, fast, curly, twisty, scaly, poisonous, creepy, slimy, slithery, green (and other colours), whirly, loopy, hungry, quiet, hissing, smooth, sneaky, lazy, and other ideas.
