Books We Read : Tick Tock Clock (Telling the Time - part 2)

You probably know that we are learning to tell the time and might have seen the activity we did here. We are reading books and doing some worksheet exercises to reinforce our learning.

The book we chose to discuss is Tick Tock Clock (My First I Can Read).

Why this book?  It is an "I can read- level -1" book. Easy for Liya to read with mum.
[With level 1 books we have reached on an agreement - she will start with title, mum will read couple of lines, then girl will read couple of lines and it continues.]
Oh, yes! Too much of negotiations happening in our household these days!

More about it? The book is about getting a schedule in a day. It chronicles the things happen through the day with the twin girls who are off to visit granny.

Tick Tock 
Nine O'Clock...

Tick Tock,
Knock, Knock....

Tick Tock 
Ten O'Clock...

It helped L to understand how to schedule her routine. 

Often, she says me "9 O'Clock off to school", "5 O'Clock drink milk", "6 O'Clock off to Park", "7.30 Craft Time", "8 O'Clock Cooking Dinner" etc. 

Simple, rhyming, repetitive and easy to read words!
Funny and neat illustrations
Couple of lines with 3-4 words in every page


We Loved the very last page...
Where it lists many clocks with needles
We had fun time reading them mapping on to our crafty clock

We ALSO did print some worksheets 
*Going to do this often so that she won't forget her learning (IA)*
L enjoyed finding time by moving dials of our clock...
You will get many of them in the internet.
Find some Samples here

She drew few clocks. First one was numbered till 15.
Why 15? asked mum.
Because, I love a clock that goes up to 15. Said the girl.
Mum smiled!
See, we parent an "out-of- the- box" thinking girl, lol!

That's for now. 

Have a great Wednesday!
