Hickory, Dickory, Dock~Early Literacy

I have been working on beginning blends with emerging readers this week, specifically on the /kl/ blend.  We learned the entire version of Hickory, Dickory, Dock and made clocks inspired by Kindergarten's 3R's posted clock art project.  

I added a little twist to the darling project by having students place mice around the clock. I downloaded the free /kl/blends via adventures in speech pathology and had kids cut out the pictures and glue them on the mice. Kids read the pictures and/or words to each other and then glued the mice around their clocks.  

This was a wonderful integrated math project.  By using the entire poem, we practiced telling time to the hour as we recited the poem.
