Are you sharing, Are you sharing           giant leap for mankind
Taking turns, Taking turns                 And walking on the moon, really blows
Are good classroom manners, Are good       your mind
classroom manners                          Back in the shuttle they began to fly
For you and me, For you and me             As they looked out the window, they

Up in the sky at night,
I see objects in flight.
Nine planets revolve around
the sun that is so bright.

From Mercury that's hot
To Pluto that is not,
All the planets are unique
And have a special spot.

In Math today we'll count by 2's
That's the number we will choose,
2,4,6,8,10, and 12
Who can sing it by themselves?

Now it's time to count by 5's
And we'll keep the song alive
with a 5, 10, 15, 20, 25
Who will give the 5's a try?

Its Indeprendence Day,
The date it the fourth of July.
The year was seventeen-seventy-six,
Today the flag fies high.

Today the Declaration was signed,
It set America free.
And Great Britain signed it too,
We are our own country.
