Star light, star bright
First star I see tonight
wish I may, I wish I might
Have this wish I wish tonight.
It’s a nice poem, and it’s a nice feeling, to sit outside and look up at the stars.
The stars remind us that our wishes are real. They may be far away, but they are there. The stars inspire us to do something.
We need to make a plan.
You are going to need some adverbs to do this.
Adverbs tell us things like:
When- today, tomorrow, by next year (They can be prepositional phrases and adverbs at the same time, sorry.)
In what order- first, second, before, then
How often- daily, always, sometimes
Write some of your goals in the stars.
Pick one goal you really want to achieve and make a plan.
Write in five things you need to do.
Each step will bring you closer to your goal.
When you reach your goal, you can color in the star!
And start making a plan for your next goal. 😉
1 Pick a goal.
2 Write your goal in a star.
3 Write on the ladder the things you need to do to reach your goal.
4 Go out and do those things!
We need to make plans to get things done. In English this means adverbs of frequency and sequencing words. Making a wish gives our English purpose because we are going to do the things we say. You are already learning English to achieve one goal. Now, let’ English help you make your dreams come true.
