First, we read about stars. Stars, by NH Author Mary Lyn Ray, told about lots of different kinds of stars and how a star can make you feel special. Henry's Stars is by another NH author! His name is David Elliot and he writes about Henry, who sees the shape of a pig in a formation of stars even if his friends do not! Finally, we read a little nonfiction book called Stars by Jennifer Dussling, which gave us some facts about the real stars in the sky.
Then, because stars are beautiful this time of year, we made our own star. But ours were not made of gas like real stars - ours were made from decorated lunch bags! We colored them, then glued several bags together. Next we opened them into a fan shape on the table so we could have fun decorating them  with stickers and jewels. 

When we were finished, we opened it all the way and stapled it together. What a BIG star!! These will hang at our houses for the winter holidays - and maybe even longer!
