This counting astronaut rhyme song teaches the concept of ordinal numbers to children. Children can use their fingers to count for each verse and it's a catchy little fingerplay song as it rhymes.
Five little’s astronauts, sitting on the stars
The first one said, "Let's go to Mars!"
The second one said, "There are spaceships in the air!"
The third one said, "But we don't care!"
The fourth one said, "Let's fly up in the sky!"
The fifth one said, "Let's fly, fly, fly!"
Then WHOOSH went the spaceship into the night and the five little astronauts zoomed out of sight!
Hints and Tips:
