Song: Did You Ever See a Hero?
(Tune: “Did you ever see a lassie”)
Did you ever see a hero, a hero, a hero,
Did you ever see a hero, fly through the sky?
Fly this way and that way, and that way and this way
Did you ever see a hero fly through the sky?
Stomping their feet, jumping up and down, shaking their body, etc.

Rhyme with Scarves: My Many Colored Capes
By Carissa Christner, 2009

My cape of bravery goes over my head.
It makes me feel bold, and its color is RED.

My cape of honesty makes villains speak true.
It chases out lies, and its color is BLUE.

My cape of fairness conquers those who are mean.
It makes me feel strong, and its color is GREEN.

My cape of calmness makes me feel mellow.
It quiets the world, and its color is YELLOW.

My cape of wisdom helps me to think
And solve tricky problems, and its color is PINK.

My favorite cape gives me a nice glow.
It’s all these great colors—In a RAINBOW!!!

Movement Rhyme: Superhero, Superhero
Superhero, superhero . . . (repeat each time)
Turn around
Touch the ground
Put on your suit
Put on your boots
Jump up high
Fly, fly, fly

Movement Rhyme: Up, Up and Away
Put your hands way up high (raise arms up in air)
Like Superkid flying across the sky (assume flying position)
Fly to the left, now fly to the right (lean to your right, then left)
Now show me your muscles with all your might, (make arm muscles)
Now Superkid’s putting his suit away (bring arms down slowly)
So he can go flying another day (rest hands in lap)
