My Day
(tune: Frere Jacques)

In the morning, in the morning
I get up, see the sun
Wash up and get dressed
Hurry down for breakfast
That’s my day, that’s my day.

When it’s noon time, when it’s noon time
I have lunch, tastes so good
I can play with my toys
Take a nap if I’m tired
That’s my day, that’s my day.

When it’s dinner time, when it’s dinner time
I clean up, I help out
Get the table ready
Then we eat together.
That’s my day, that’s my day.

In the evening, in the evening
That’s the best family time
We might watch the TV
Or we play together
That’s my day, that’s my day.

When it’s nighttime, when it’s nighttime
Take a bath, brush my teeth
Get into my PJs
Snuggle into my bed
Time to sleep, time to sleep.

The Clock Song
(tune: The Wheels on the Bus)

The hands on the clock go round and round,
All day long, never stop
The hands on the clock go round and round,
Telling the time.

The long hand on the clock points to minutes
Every number, means five more
There are 60 minutes in an hour
Telling the time.

The short hand on the clock points to the hour
Every number, counts as one
There are 12 hours on the clock
Telling the time.

When the hands point to 12, we count again
Morning first, then the eve
There’s 24 hours in a day
Telling the time.

The hands on the clock go round and round,
All day long, never stop
The hands on the clock go round and round,
Telling the time.

Craft Instructions: 

Color the clock and hands. Cut them out. Paste them on cardboard or a paper plate if you want to make them stiff. Use a round head brass fastener to hold the hands in place. Have fun learning to tell time!
