Space Stories: 


Songs, Poems, and Fingerplays to Share:

Zoom, Zoom, Zoom
Zoom, zoom, zoom (brush hands together)
We’re going to the moon.
Zoom, zoom, zoom
We’re going to the moon.
If you want to take a trip (creep fingers up arm)
climb aboard my rocket ship.
Zoom, zoom, zoom (brush hands together)
We’re going to the moon.
In 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 (crouch down lower and lower)
Blast off! (jump up high)

Galaxy Stretch
Bend and stretch, reach for the stars
There goes Jupiter, here comes Mars
Bend and stretch, reach for the sky
Stand on tippytoe, oh so high!

If You’re Going to the Moon
Tune:  “If You’re Happy and You Know It

If you’re going to the moon, wear your suit (ziiiiip)
If you’re going to the moon, wear your suit (ziiiiip)
If you’re going to the moon and you want to get there soon
If you’re going to the moon, wear your suit (ziiiiip)

…wear your boots (stomp, stomp)
…wear your helmet (pat head, pat head)
wear your gloves (clap, clap)

Stars Fingerplay 
At night I see the twinkling stars
(fist up and open hands over your head)
And a great big smiling moon
(circle arms overhead)
My Mama/Papa tucks me into bed
(Lay pointer of one hand across the palm of the other hand)
And sings a good-night tune.
(Rock your hands back and forth)

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
Twinkle twinkle little star
(Hold hands up about shoulder height. Open and close hands)
How I wonder what you are
(Raise shoulders and hold hands out)
Up above the world so high
(Raise hands high in the sky and open and close them again)
Like a diamond in the sky
(Form forefinger and thumb from each hand in a diamond shape)
Twinkle twinkle little star
(Hold hands up about shoulder height. Open and close hands)
How I wonder what you are
(Raise shoulders and hold hands out)

Six Little Men in a Flying Saucer
Six  little men in a flying saucer
Flew round the world one day
They looked left and right
But they didn’t like the sight
So one man flew away
Wheeeeeeeee!!

(Continue counting down to zero)

 

We hope to see you at storytime!
