Funkel Funkel Kleiner Stern

This is the name of a song you know quite well:  Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.

We are learning this in German in Kindergarten.

We heard a German story called “Sterntaler” – it is a fairy tale about a girl who gives away everything she has, but then stars fall from the sky to give her new clothes and coins.

Here is a shadow puppet show of the story (in German).  We listened to an English explanation in class.

 

Here is a link to a lovely sing-along video of the song.

Viel Spaß!
