So, my dd loves stars. We haven’t quite finished the week, but we have read most of the books that I checked out for this theme. Here they are:
First Space Encyclopedia by Caroline Bingham – wonderful pictures, of course (it’s a DK book)
Las Estrellas by Thomas Adamson – our en espanol read aloud (I’m trying to do this more often)
Star Shapes by Peter Malone – gorgeous book that describes several constellations
Stars by Robin Birch
My House of Stars by Megan Mcdonald – this could easily be used as a geography read aloud, but not so interesting for the younger crowd
I am still planning on doing the suggested fine motor skills activity which is simply putting those gold and silver star stickers on a piece of black construction paper. That should be super simple and fun for my dd. I just need to remember to go and buy those stickers. I think that we may also make star shaped cookies tomorrow that are green (St. Patrick’s Day and Stars combo).
