Read, Retell, and Learn Story Elements with Hickory Dickory Dock!

Hickory Dickory Dock is a classic children’s nursery rhyme, and kids absolutely love it! 

This resource download focuses on story elements for kindergarten and first-grade students. Story elements are critical for early literacy instruction. From the time students enter kindergarten to the day they graduate high school, they will study the parts of a story. In primary school, the characteristics of a story are:

  • Characters – people or animals in the book
  • Setting – when and where the story takes place
  • Sequence – the events of the story or the beginning, middle, and ending of the story

 Students will love reading the nursery rhyme and interacting with the slides to drag, drop, and sort characters, settings, and order events in a sequence.
