Spin the spinner to see what time you have to add to the rhyme

For instance, the above time is 8 o’clock, so change the 1 o’clock in the rhyme with 8 o’clock:

“Hickory Dickory Dock, the mouse ran up the clock, the clock struck 8, the mouse ran down, Hickory Dickory Dock.” Even though it does not rhyme like the original 1 o’clock, it does not matter much since the objective with this activity is to learn to read a clock.
