Hickory Dickory Dock

Hickory Dickory Dock!
The mouse ran up the clock.
The clock struck one
And down he did run.
Hickory Dickory Dock!
This week we learned the nursery rhyme and motions to Hickory Dickory Dock! What fun!Make sure to ask your child to say the rhyme and to do the motions! Then ask that the rhyme be recited in a little squeaky mouse voice!
We are still working on words that rhyme. This week one of the Literacy Centers that children could choose was to put pictures under words that rhyme with "hill" (as in jack and Jill) or words that rhyme with "clock" (as in the Hickory Dickory clock). Ask your child if the following words rhyme with hill or clock: dock, Jill, rock, shock, pill, knock, jock. Can your child think of other words that rhyme with hill or clock? To download a copy of the rhyme for your child to "read" go to
Next week is that all-time favorite, "Humpty Dumpty." He just cracks me up!
