Star Week 2017

This last week in November is Star Week. We will be singing songs about stars and talking about shiny things. The play dough will have glitter added to it and the sensory table will have shiny white sand with glitter in it too. The children will be painting star shapes with glitter paint. We will be talking about the night sky. There will be stars on the walls in the climbing room that the children can find using flashlights. The older children will be making star scopes and talking about what they see in the night sky (besides rain and clouds!). Here is to hoping for a few nights when they can see the stars now that it is getting dark before they head for bed.

Star Light Star Bright
Star light, Star bright
First star I see tonight
I wish I may, I wish I might
Have the wish I wish tonight.

Hey Diddle Diddle
Hey diddle diddle,
The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon.
The little dog laughed
To see such sport,
And the dish ran away
With the spoon.

10 Little Stars
One little, two little, three little stars,
Four little, five little, six little stars,
Seven little, eight little, nine little stars,
Ten stars in the sky

Star Poem
At night I see the twinkling stars
And a great big smiling moon.
My mother tucks me into bed
And sings a good-night tune.

Star Song
Sung to Mary Had a Little Lamb
Stars are shining in the sky
in the sky, in the sky
Stars are shining in the sky
Way way up so high.
