    My friend got little shells and taped the letters of the alphabet on it (1 set for each table) and the student were asked to choose 5 letters and make as many words as they could using the letters.

    We sponge painted hermit crabs on white construction paper..I made a template and they each made one. Under it there could be a little writing piece...My hermit crab is..

    She also had him do some of the actions that the animals made in the book - very cute.

    Make a shell shape on a piece of construction paper. Then, have the kids paint their hand red and put it fingers pointing down on the paper where the crab goes. They can then decorate all around the shell with seaweed or any of the other characters in the book. Lastly, I put some googly eyes on the crab. They turn out really cute!

    I love that idea! I am going to use it when I do an ocean theme in June!
