Theme: Solar System

This month we are becoming astronauts and exploring outer space! We will be singing, dancing, and playing songs all about our Solar System. We will learn the order of the planets using our glockenspiels as a guide, learn about the relationship between the moon and sun, and blast off in our rocket ships as we dance to song Rocket Ship Runby the Laurie Berkner Band.

Sharing Instruments: Sun, Moon, Star Drum

Class Instruments: Claves and Glockenspiels

Activity For Home: We will be starting each music class this month with the song “I Know The Planets”. It’s a fun song to sing as we learn the names and order of the planets. You can easily sing along with your child at home using the tune “Skip to my Lou” and the lyrics below. The kids love to show off their knowledge of our universe!

I know the planets

(Tune: Skip to my Lou)

I know the planets, 

How about you? 

I know the planets, 

How about you? 

I know the planets, 

How about you? 

Lets say the names together

 

Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars 

Jupiter and Saturn among the stars

Uranus and Neptune orbiting too

All spin around in space it’s true

 

Spinning, spinning every one 

Everything spins around the sun 

The Earth’s where we live it’s number 3

It’s atmosphere is right for me
