Zoom Zoom Zoom, We’re Going to the Moon

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,
hop aboard my rocket ship.
Zoom Zoom Zoom
We’re going to the moon!
5, 4, 3, 2, 1, blast off!

Developmental Tip of the Month:

This song about a rocket is exciting  for many children, and they often try hard to learn the associated actions. Once they learn to control muscle movement and coordinate with eye-hand development,they become better at other more challenging tasks. These physical abilities are called “fine motor skills” and they help children prepare for learning how to write (or type on a keyboard) successfully. So encourage your child to sing this song to you, using all the motions we did here today.

Popcorn

Pop pop pop
You put the corn in the pot.

Pop pop pop
And you shake it till it’s hot.

Pop pop pop
You lift the lid and what have you got?

Pop pop pop
Popcorn!

Developmental Tip of the Month:

Have your child try to jump with both feet off of the ground while reciting this rhyme. Physically, it will help your child let off steam and build gross motor skills. Because this short rhyme plays games with sounds, it exposes your child to the qualities and differences in sound. And, acting out kernels turning into popcorn ignites your child’s imagination.
