Guiding Question: Which Mother Goose rhymes tell about night time?
We read "Star Light, Star Bright", "The Man in the Moon", "Wee Willie Winkie", and several others. We finished with "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star," sang the song, and played a memory game with colored stars. We also colored a picture and tried to draw stars in the margins.
