Teaching Children to Tell Time and Read the Clock
Adapted by Jim Rule
This song is available Jim Rule's Too Much Fun All In One!.
I created this clock song as a finger play. I indicate “11” and “12” by touching my thumb to my temple so that we all look like we have antlers at the end. I also use an analog clock as a prop to reinforce the visual component.
You musical types will notice 12 half step modulations - one octave. So we are right back where we started ... like clockwork! – Jim Rule
Tick tock. Tick tock.
Goes the clock.
I know the time. It’s ___ o”clock.
