Teaching my 4th Graders how to tell Time
|All day long mister clock goes tick tock, tick tock,
If he could talk he would say, "children, run. Don't walk"
On his nose~mister clock, has two hands; big and small,
The big one tells the minute, the small~ which hour to call!
Round his face, with equal space~We find lines big and small,
The big lines are numbered 1~12, And there are 60 lines in all.
These 60 lines tell each minute~ for 60 minutes make an hour.
The hours 12 can be told~ by the lines like towers
So here's a secret about mister clock~ which I hope u find.
It's real easy to tell time~ if you keep your fives tables in mind.
