Songs
Rocket-Suit!
I jump in my rocket-suit
(Jump forward)
And pop on my helmet
(Slap top of head with both hands)
I pump my space boots
(Crouch and make pumping sounds)
And shout, “Ignition…”
(Hands over head to a point)
In 5, 4, 3, 2, 1… Lift off!
(Jump high making rocket sounds)
My Telescope
Through my telescope I see the moon!
(Make telescope with both hands)
Through my telescope I see stars!
(Point telescope in another direction)
Through my telescope I see you!
(Point telescope at someone)
Dancing on the planet Mars!
(Do an interpretive Martian dance)
