Get ready for summer reading with these suggestions for this year’s Collaborative Summer Reading Program theme, “Every Hero Has a Story”:

superhero-girl-clipart-3Super Song

(to the tune of “Bingo”)

There was a kid who wore a cape,

she was a super hero.

S-U-P-E-R, S-U-P-E-R,S-U-P-E-R,

She was a super hero!

(Repeat, gradually replacing each letter with Superman-like arm movements or claps)

 

Superhero, It’s Just a Job (Action Rhyme)

I’m a damsel in distress and a dragon is chasing me,

his fire is very hot, as you can plainly see,

I call for help, “Someone save me!”

and a hero arrives in answer to my plea!

With a POW, WHAM, BOOM, he saves the day again!

A superhero’s job is to conquer the villain!

 

I’m a little boy who became too greedy,

I climbed the beanstalk, but now the giant’s chasing me,

I call for help, “Someone save me!”

and a hero arrives in answer to my plea!

With a POW, WHAM, BOOM, he saves the day again!

A superhero’s job is to conquer the villain!

 

I’m in the wrong place at the wrong time,

when the robber arrives in the bank, I’m collecting my dimes,

I call for help, “Someone save me!”

and a hero arrives in answer to my plea!

With a POW, WHAM, BOOM, he saves the day again!

A superhero’s job is to conquer the villain!
