“Space” Preschool Storytime

Opening Song
I wiggle my fingers. I wiggle my toes.
I wiggle my ears. I wiggle my nose.
I wiggle my shoulders. I wiggle my chin.
I stretch my arms wide and pull them back in.
I wiggle my elbows. I wiggle my knees.
I hop like a bunny. I smile and say, “Cheese!”
Now I have no more wiggles left in me
And I sit on the floor as still as can be.

Book – I Want to be an Astronaut

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 boots,
If you’re going to the moon, this is what you have to do,
If you’re going to the moon, wear your boots,
If you’re going to the moon, wear your gloves (clap, clap)…
If you’re going to the moon, wear your helmet (pat, pat)…

Book – Sun, Moon, and Stars 

The Earth Turns Around
(The Farmer and the Dell)
 The earth turns around
The earth turns around
Once a day, every day
The earth turns around

The moon goes ’round the earth
The moon goes ’round the earth
Once a month, every month
The moon goes ’round the earth

The earth goes ’round the sun
The earth goes ’round the sun
Once a year, every year
The earth goes ’round the sun

Song – Laurie Berkner’s “Rocketship Run 

Book – Higher! Higher!

Zoom, Zoom, Zoom
Zoom, zoom, zoom, we’re going to the moon.
Zoom, zoom, zoom, we’re going to the moon.
If you want to take a trip,
climb aboard my rocket ship.
Zoom, zoom, zoom, we’re going to the moon.
In 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 – Blast off!
Far, far, far, we’re going to the stars
Fun, fun, fun, we’re going to the sun

Sometimes I am Tall
Sometimes I am tall.
Sometimes I am small.
Sometimes I am wide.
Sometimes I hide. Boo!
Sometimes tall. Sometimes small.
See how I am now.

Goodbye
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as high as we can
Good-bye! (in high, squeaky voice)
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as low as we can
Good-bye! (in a deep voice)
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as fast as we can
Good-bye! (very quick)
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as slow as we can
Good-bye! (very slowly and drawn out)
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as quiet as we can
Good-bye! (in a whisper)
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as loud as we can
GOOD-BYE! (yelling)
