Felt Board:  Ten Little Stars

Ten little stars looking shiny and fine.
One shot off then there were nine.

Nine little stars staying up very late.
One shot off then there were eight.

Eight little stars way up in heaven.
One shot off and then there were seven!

Seven little stars doing their tricks.
One shot off and then there were six!

Six little stars blinking like they are alive,
One shot off and then there were five!

Five little stars begging for me to explore.
One shot off and then there were four!

Four little stars winking at me.
One shot off and then there were three!

Three little stars with nothing to do.
One shot off, and then there were two!

Two little stars afraid of the sun.
One shot off, and then there was one!

One little star alone is no fun.
It shot off, and then there was none.

Song: Fruit Salad Salsa by Lori Berkner

Song: Tuning Up For Outer Space (Sung to: The Farmer in the Dell)

The sun is in the sky.
The sun is in the sky.
Hot and bright, it gives us light.
The sun is in the sky.

The moon is in the sky.
The Moon is in the sky.
Around and ’round the earth it goes.
The moon is in the sky.

The stars are in the sky.
The stars are in the sky.
Twinkly bright, they shine at night.
The stars are in the sky.

Craft: Constellation Stickers- Supply constellation templates from the link below. Make sure to provide plenty of different sized stickers and encourage the use of the templates, but don’t require it. I also provided plain black paper if they didn’t want to do the constellations.
