When a little click beetle falls onto his back, he seeks the help of a wise old click beetle. “Look at me,” says the more experienced click beetle, giving a loud CLICK and flipping onto its feet. But try as he might, the clumsy little click beetle just can’t get the hang of it–or can he?
The ‘The Very Clumsy Click Beetle Book Companion’ will help your little learners develop sequencing skills while learning about click beetles. It will also help children with identifying words from their beginning and ending sounds.

After listening to the story, the children color the pictures on the sequencing activity sheets, cut it out and paste it in the correct order. Use sticky tape to stick toothpicks on the back of the pictures of the click beetles. When they are done, pair the kids up and ask them to re-tell the story to their partner while using the click beetle puppets to move along the pictures.
