 Lyrics to "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" solo.  (Joyfully sing it    while you are playing outdoors or doing chores!)
Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky!
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

How I wonder what you are. 


___1.  For Twinkle A, B, and C, you studied about Shinichi Suzuki, and the place of his birth -Nagoya, Japan.  Now you are practicing the solo "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star".  To connect with the solo, learn more about the stars.  Please watch one of the following videos or an article:

-What are stars for children?  (Ages 2-4)
-What Are Stars?

Sophia "getting ready"
-All About Stars (For Kids)

 *Optional Craft ideas
-Star Clock
 -Constellation Sewing Cards
-Paper Tube Telescope

 ___2. When Twinkles A-C and "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" has been learned, create a flashcard for each of the Twinkles. Place them in a jar or box. Each day that you practice, close your eyes and pick a card. The one chosen is the Twinkle of the day! (LH and RH played separately.) You will now begin learning new Solos in Suzuki Piano Book 1.  Be sure to practice Twinkles each day as a warm-up before practicing each of your Suzuki solos. Create flashcards for each new piece as you learn them to add to your flashcard holder. Check out Flavia's beautiful example below!
