On Thursday, November 29, Slingerlands Elementary School hosted a visit by New York Times Best Selling Author Susan Verde, who spoke to students in grades K-2. 

During her visit, Verde spoke with students about her writing process and how she gets her story ideas from real life experiences. She also practiced some mindfulness activities and yoga poses with the students including mountain pose, tree pose and warrior pose.

Verde is the author of 9 books for children, including “The Museum,” “I Am Yoga,” “The Water Princess,” and her newest addition “I Am Human.” All of these books can be found in the school library. We are so grateful to the Slingerlands PTO – this fabulous visit would not have been possible without their generosity.

Prior to her visit, the students created two “I am” murals in the library where students wrote down the things like “I am adventure,” “I am kind,” and “I am silly.”
