365: Moon Day
July 20 is Moon Day. Today marks the 50th anniversary  of the moon landing. We did a couple things to celebrate the day!
We started by singing a little moon music. It’s by Jean Warren and in the tune of “I’m a little teapot”. 
Lyrics: I'm a little astronaut/flying to the moon/my rocket is ready/we blast off soon/I climb aboard/and close the hatch/5-4-3-2-1, off we blast
We also read Seasons of the Moon by Jean Warren. It’s a beautiful poem adapted from NE American Indianlegends. It tells of all of the names for the full moons and where they got their name.
Finally, Jude did a “moon walk”. We strapped on dry sponges to Jude’s feet and helped him walk around with his special moon boots on! He loved the feeling! We might have a little astronaut on our hands.
