Bend and stretch, reach for the stars
There goes Jupiter, here comes Mars
Bend and stretch and reach for the sky
Stand on tip-e-toe, oh so high!

Action Rhyme: “Moon Ride”
Do you want to go up with me to the moon? (point up)
Let’s get in our rocket ship and blast off soon! (climb in, seat belt, blast off)
Faster and faster we reach to the sky (jump and reach)
Isn’t it fun to be able to fly? (hands out)
We’re on the moon, now all take a look (look around)
Sit back down, and I’ll read you a book. (sit down)

Tune: “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?

Tune:  “London Bridges Falling Down”

Stars are twinkling in the sky,
In the sky, in the sky.
Stars are twinkling in the sky,
Way up high.

We can see them twinkling bright,
Twinkling bright, twinkling bright.
We can see them twinkling bright
All through the night.

Starlight, star bright, first star I see tonight.
Wish I may, wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight.

Tune:  “I’m A Little Teapot”
I’m a little star with sides galore.
I have ten and not one more.
They come from my center as you can see
With five points –all around me!

Tune:  “Three Blind Mice”

I love stars.  I love stars.
Near or far, near or far.
I love stars in the apple I eat.
I love stars that are out of reach.
I love stars in flowers so sweet.
I love stars.

Teach your child the nursery rhyme Hey Diddle Diddle.
            Hey, diddle, diddle
            The cat and the fiddle,
            The cow jumped over the moon.
            The little dog laughed to see such fun
            And the cow ran away with the spoon.

Four Little Stars
Four little stars winking at me, 
One shot off and then there were three. 
Three little stars with nothing to do, 
One shot off and then there were two. 
Two little stars afraid of the sun, 
One shot off and then there was one. 
One little star not having any fun, 
It shot off and then there were none!
