Tick-Tock Goes the Clock

Fingerplays and rhymes are a great way to encourage early literacy. Here is one that I have done in storytime, and  both toddlers and children enjoy. 

Big clocks make a sound like
TICK-TOCK (loud);

Small clocks make a
sound like tick-tock;
tick-tock, tick-tock,
tick-tock (softer);

And the little tiny
clocks make a sound
like Tick-tock, tick-tock,
tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock (whisper).
