“A trip around the sun, a trip around the sun, it takes a year for the Earth to make a trip around the sun”
We sing the above song for each child to celebrate their day of birth. One student pretends to be the sun and the birthday child hold a model of the earth and travels around the sun while we all sing “A Trip Around the Sun”. The birthday child makes one trip around the sun for each year of their life.
It is a fun way to help the kids conceptualize concepts of time.
It is a nice way for a child to get a little extra love and attention from our class in honor of their birth and life.
