“Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock, tick tock,”
(Sway a little faster)

“Tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick!” (Give a tickle)

Early Literacy Tip and Activity:


Knee bounces are great activity to add to your daily play routine with your toddler. They “are a great way for children to feel the beat with their entire body in addition to hearing the rhymes. A steady beat is reminiscent of their mother’s heartbeat, a sound that provided them comfort in the womb.



Knee bounce to this classic rhyme, “London Bridge is Falling Down”. Keep bouncing in time to the beat, then let them “fall down” your legs at the end of the verse. Keep the same bouncing rhythm for the second verse, then lift them high at end.
