Sing a Song

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star

Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder what you are!
Up above the world so high
Like a diamond in the sky
Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder what you are!

Watch

Mister Rogers talks with pianist Andre Watts

Try This

Practice singing the scale together (do, re,mi...) "Twinkle, Twinkle" uses six of the seven notes of the scale. It's okay if you can't sing on key! It's more importnat to have fun singing.
