Stars

Gathering Time:
Poem-  Starlight, star bright, First star I see tonight, I wish I may, I wish I might Have the wish I wish tonight.
Sing “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” use the book
Talk about when we see stars at night
Focus Activities:
 Sort origami stars by color, then size- Anytime I can use my husband's origami skills with my children I do.  He has this container full of cool origami stars.
 We had a great time sorting them.

Thanks for the link to the origami! I learned to make these stars about 12 years ago in China, but have since forgotten how. I would love to use our paper scraps to make more so we can sort them.
