Table of Contents How Many Sides? How Long? Is It Time Yet? Another Zero Think of a square There are equal sides When you think of a triangle, Let sides be your guide A rectangle has short sides And long But it’s easy to picture All those other shapes wrong A pentagon has sides An octagon A hexagon has sides Careful! Keep them straight But there’s one easy shape That you’ll always remember A circle goes round Like December to December What Is an Hour? 10 What Is a Minute? 11 What Is a Second? 12 Is It Time Yet? How Long? I think I’d better watch my watch The race begins at The big hand ticks past and I walk up to the line It must take an inchworm quite a long time to go, For an inchworm is short It’s a slowpoke you know An inchworm’s inch, not 8, 6, or But working together 12 inchworms can be As long as a foot That’s 12 inches in all A foot is 12 inches whether spread out or tall So if 12 inch-long inchworms stretched out side by side, Would they be a foot? That’s for you to decide The little hand is creeping It’s moving way too slow I wait for it to reach the At it’s “Ready?

What Is a Minute? What is a minute? It’s the time it will take To slather blue frosting on a chocolate cupcake It’s a short little message, or a handshake or two It takes just a minute to buckle your shoe It’s 60 short seconds It’s a nice gentle hug It’s how long to count spots on a 60-spot bug It’s the length of an ad in your favorite show, And the time it will take to spell MUSTARD real slow It takes one full minute for the big hand to click Around all the numbers That’s 60 quick ticks What is a second? It’s a wink or a click, A snap of your fingers, a tock or a tick It takes one second to jump up high It takes one second to slap your thigh In one split second you can slam the door, Turn off the light or snore one snore You can blink blink, or clap clap You can count to 1, or tap tap snap clap 11 12 ...
