Information About Dickery Dickery Dare
This song dates back to The Real Mother Goose book in 1916.
This song is another version of Hickory Dickory Dock. This song is sang or chanted to the same tune as Hickory Dickory Dock.
The lyrics of this song will help children to rhyme. This song also teaches children about colors, animals, and nonsense.
The lyrics "the pig flew up in the air" teach children about nonsense. Clearly, pigs do not fly, but it is silly to say that they do. The teacher can take this as a way to explain how pigs cannot fly and how silly it is to think so.
With the lyrics "the man in brown", teachers can show children the color brown and then continue to review all of the other colors. This will be a great way to teach a lesson based solely on colors.
To help children learn this song, pictures of pigs can be used and this can be a great way to learn about the animals in the barnyard.
