Music to spark a better life for older adults and preschoolers

Time Songs for Children


Alice in Wonderland: White Rabbit - Who Killed...

Time is a concept that can be difficult to grasp.  With preschoolers, I tend to focus on seasons of the year and daily occurring events (breakfast, playtime, bath time, bedtime to name a few).  Here are a few songs that go along with the general idea of time. Some are for singing; some are for movement & playing activities.  Others are for discussion.

  • All Night, All Day (Gospel)
  • Good Night Ladies
  • House on Pooh Corner
  • My Grandfather’s Clock
  • Rock Around the Clock
  • Syncopated Clock
  • Hickory, Dickery, Dock
  • Time to be Happy

Here are a couple of non-affiliate sites that have songs for preschoolers:

  • Songs for Teaching – They have songs about seasons, calendars, and reading the clock for purchase.
  • Listen & Learn Music – Rachel Rambach has some very affordable music songs about seasons and months to check out.

If you are interested in books for children, here are a few suggestions:

  • A Second is a Hiccup by Hazel Hutchins
  • Clocks and More Clocks by Pat Hutchins
  • It’s About Time by Stuart Murphy
  • Pajama Time by Sandra Boynton
  • Telling Time with Mama Cat by Dan Harper
  • The Clock Struck One: A Time-telling Tale by Trudy Harris

Do you have other songs or books you use when talking about time with toddlers & preschoolers?  Please share them under comments!
