Stars and lights and things that shine are all around! "Twinkle Wink" invites your youngest students to look around and find things that twinkle or shine. They can then demonstrate what a twinkle looks like with wiggling or pinching fingers in the air. Just a buoyant song that alternates twinkle actions and winking, it can also be used to help teach lessons on patterning (AB), left and right distinction, or simply coordinating actions with the lyrics.
The tune itself in the verse and chorus consists of even rhythms (nothing harder than a half note) surrounded by copious amounts of more complex acoustic and synthetic rhythms. This driving pulse inspires little kids to be engaged in the actions and really have some fun! Now teach them to follow the lyric cues to know when to "twinkle" and when to "wink," and you'll have a repetitive lesson that really teaches to the age. (from Music K-8, Vol. 26, No. 2)
