Mr Clicketty Cane

Mr Clicketty Cane is such a silly song to learn daily activities.  Kids think it is so funny and crack up every time they sing it.  It’s a great song because there is a lot of movement and acting out you can do while singing.  Here are some cards to teach the silly vocabulary from the song and the vocabulary with the ‘normal’ words. As usual, you can learn the vocabulary by playing Memory, Go Fish, Pictionary and this is a fun game to play Charades with since you can also mime out the words!

An alternative to the traditional way to play Memory: instead of finding pairs of the same cards, try play Association Memory.  Play with just one copy of each card.

  • Separate the vocabulary from the song and the vocabulary with correct things you use to wash your face, clean your teeth ecc.
  • Turn the cards face down, as in Memory, but look for the two words that go together- ie face/orange juice.
  • As in Memory, the one who finds the most cards wins.
  • You can play again by switching the silly vocabulary with the ‘normal’ things you use and play again (so this time you will need to find face/ soap, etc).

ps In case you are wondering….The song is from an Australian man named Peter Combes.  In some regions of Australia, they call a slide a slippery dip.
