Snake Supper

Alliteration at its best, Snake Supper emphasizes a hissing, slithering snake’s quest for supper.  However, the snake is never satisfied and keeps eating bigger and bigger animals until finally one of them outsmarts him.  But does the snake change his ways? It’s a great story and I never get tired of reading it.

Make a table of s-words, found in the beginning, middle and end of words.  Color code them, such as orange words are found in the story, blue words are brainstormed by the class, green word are found in another story.  Look up s in the dictionary and find popular words beginning with s.  And of course, write a poem or story with as many of the s-words as possible.
