Star Week


This week is Star Week. We will be singing songs about stars and talking about shiny things. The playdough will have glitter added to it and the sensory table will have white beans and blue tools. We will be painting star shapes with glitter paint. During the next two weeks we will talk about things that shine, lights, stars and the moon. There will be flashlights in the climbing to use to find the stars on the walls and color paddles to shine the light through. This is a wonderful time to discuss different types of light – candles, twinkle lights, different lights in your house as well as the natural light outside – the sun, moon and stars.

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.
