I’ve finally come up with a lesson plan for singing time for teaching the 2nd verse to Stars Were Gleaming.  I didn’t realize that the 2nd verse to this song is a BEAR!  All those matchy words…I’M having a hard time with it and I’m sure the kids will!

 

To teach it, I will simply utilize the chalkboard again like I did with the first verse (find that lesson plan HERE).

When in a pinch, I bring my nice, trusty chalk!

 
Crayola has some chalk that would work great too (this is found on Amazon):
 
 
Draw big yellow stars on the chalkboard across the top portion of the board.  Inside the stars will be all the matchy key words because they are SO difficult! (each line below will be one star):
  • clearness/nearness
  • leading/guiding/riding
  • lovely showing
  • shining growing
  • onward going
  • gleaming glowing
Then with the bottom half of the chalkboard draw a brown game board going from left to right (think a simple sideways ladder with 6 spaces, one for each star/keyword listed above) and a desert scene. Add some palm trees to try to get a look like the top posted image above.  Then draw a nice, big yellow star on the very right of the game board which will be the “finish.”
 
The activity is to move the wisemen marker from the left to right so they get to their star.  Every time a keyword star is erased and the kids sing the song through correctly, the wisemen will move one space to the right.
 
This is the wisemen marker I created:
Download it using the access button at the bottom of this post  I print mine on card stock, cut around the square and laminate it.  Use a magnet to move it from square to square (masking tape will work too).
 
If time permits, after we’ve moved the wisemen across the game board and all the keyword stars are erased, we will review the 1st verse by starting the game over.  Each time the kids sing the verse correctly, the wisemen will move one space.
