A Counting by Feet Book

One is a Snail Ten is a Crab: A Counting by Feet Book by April Pulley Sayre and Jeff Sayre, 2003. Ages K-2

Using animals and insects, this book counts the feet! Count the feet along with your student from 1-10, then 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 and 100!

“80 is eight crabs…or ten spiders. 90 is nine crabs…or ten spiders and a crab. So, 100 is ten crabs…or, if you’re really counting slowly…one hundred snails!”

This is a fun and creative way of learning to count and add. Even if your student cannot yet count to 100, this is a great introductory tool to get him or her interested.
