Will the barnyard animals trick – or treat- Farmer Brown? Kids will love acting out the story with this Click Clack Boo sensory play activity.
Book-based sensory play helps you meet your students’ sensory needs while offering them opportunities to play as you introduce them to a new story or reread an old favorite.
In Click Clack Boo, Farmer Brown does not like Halloween. So he draws the shades, puts on his footy pajamas, and climbs into bed.
But do you think the barnyard animals have any respect for a man in footy pajamas? No, they do not.
For them, the Halloween party has just begun. And we all know these critters far prefer tricks over treats. There are big surprises in store for Farmer Brown!
