We're Flying Off in Space
*for this, I printed a few space-y pictures like planets, aliens, rockets, etc. and sang the following song to guess them-
We're flying off in space, we're flying off in space
I think we'll see a [rocket ship] there, we're flying off in space

*This was a great story for practicing retelling skills. We had a good time remembering all the items to lady tried using to reach the star.

If You're Going to the Moon
(to the tune of If You're Happy and You Know It)
If you're going to the moon wear your boots (stomp stomp)
If you're going to the moon wear your boots (stomp stomp)
If you're going to the moon, if you're going to the moon
If you're going to the moon wear your boots (stomp stomp)
If you're going to the moon wear your suit (ziiiip!)
If you're going to the moon wear your suit (ziiiip!)
If you're going to the moon, if you;re going to the moon
If you're going to the moon wear your suit (ziiiip!)
[we also came up with wear your helmet (pat your head) and wear your gloves (clap hands)]

Goodbye Friends
Goodbye friends, goodbye friends
Goodbye friends- it's time to say goodbye!
