This song is ideally used with the Christmas star craft activity but can also be done without the craft by just drawing numbered, coloured stars on the board or hanging numbered, coloured stars around the class.
1 Hang the Christmas craft stars (or stars that you have made yourself) around the class or on the board so that all the class can see them.
2 Check understanding by saying Point to the blue star, or Which number is the blue star?, etc.
3 Use the gaps in the song to change what the children will be pointing to or where they will be going to, for example: Point to where they are. BLUE! All the children should point to a blue star or Point to where they are. RED! All the children should point to a red star, etc.
4 The children practise singing the song to the tune of ‘Jingle Bells’ and carrying out the actions.
