Writing - Nursery Rhyme: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star
You may know the rhyme, 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star' but can you write it in Spanish?

Writing - Nursery Rhyme: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

This Spanish Difficult Review quiz you will cover the nursery rhyme of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star as it is spoke in Spanish. Now what child has never heard of this nursery rhyme. One would be very hard pressed the world over to find anyone who hasn’t heard it. It is an English lullaby that was written by Jane Taylor. It was originally simply titled The Star and was published for the first time in 1806.

As it was a lullaby, it was originally meant to be sung, although it also fell into the rhyme category. Like so many other nursery rhymes, Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star contains several verses but only the first verse is widely known. For this quiz, however, lines/phrases will be drawn from even the lesser known verses so pay very close attention to your Spanish vocabulary words.

Once again, as has been the format for all of the writing quizzes, you are being asked to write down each quiz sentence/phrase on a piece of paper and then write out its English translation. The act of writing goes a long, long way towards helping the brain remember not only the Spanish vocabulary words, but their order in a sentence and trains the brain to bounce easily back and forth from one language to another. Now – shall we begin? Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star
