Twinkle Twinkle Little Stars, Look How Far That You Have Come!

nursery rhymes, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star activities, free common core lessons for kindergarten, free common core lessons for 1st grade, Daily 5 activities, Daily 5 word work activities, Whenever I got a chance, I plugged in nursery rhymes into my Y5’s day; I felt it was important to cover all sorts of genres.

Surprisingly, the longer I taught, the less little ones I found who knew nursery rhymes by heart!

I used to have an entire unit on nursery rhymes, but the school year zipped by so fast, that there was never enough time in May to get to everything I wanted to.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star can be plugged in anywhere during the year, as most teachers have a Star Student board, and as teachers, we are endeavoring to help those little ones, twinkle and shine their brightest.

This 12-page packet is a fun way to reinforce a variety of Common Core State Standards: L.K.2a, L.1.2b, RF.1.1a, RF.K3c, RF.K.2a, RF.K.1a, RF.K.1c, K.G.1
