One Is a Snail, Ten Is a Crab: A Counting by Feet Book

One Is a Snail, Ten is a Crab is an adorable introduction to “counting by feet”. Written by April Pulley Sayre and Jeff Sayre and illustrated by Randy Cecil, this counting book is a valuable addition to any elementary school lesson on what it looks like to use grouping, skip counting, and decomposing numbers. A project could follow the reading of this book asking students to decompose numbers into crabs and snails or create another imaginative way to represent groups of items. Practical and accompanied by delightful drawings, One Is a Snail, Ten Is a Crab is a wonderful read.
