Provide materials for children to make starry art:
Students, depending on their level, can trace their names with the beginning and ending of each letter marked with gold stars; or they might write their names and stick stars on the beginning and ending of each letter. Older students can begin with a blank paper.
Add a math connection: students sort the star names by number of stars, number of letters
Play "starry" music as students work. Display their artwork in and around the classroom.
