My first grade students LOVED this story. I did the book, then showed the video, then extended it by making a hermit crab using stuffed pasta shells, pom-poms and googly eyes! Thanks so much for the video!
This was an excellent supplementary teaching tool for my Level 1 ASD learners in grades 3-5! Thank you!
