Rhyme: Do you want to go up with me to the moon?
[Point to friend, self, then to sky.]
Let’s get in our rocket ship and blast off soon!
[Pretend to climb in ship, swish hands quickly.]
Faster and faster we reach to the sky.
[Jump and reach.]
Isn’t it fun to be able to fly?
We’re on the moon, now all take a look.
[Look down.]
Sit back down, and I’ll read you a book.
[All sit down.]
