If you are looking for some fishy fun, or crabby comprehension, read this book, Clumsy Crab and try our activities to go with it. We are both beach and ocean animal lovers, so we spend the month of May doing an in depth study of these animals. The kids love it because the animals are so fascinating and unique. This story pairs well with Clumsy Duck for some compare and contrast activities. We included writing, comprehension activities, alphabetical order, and some crab facts to print and post. Also, if you reduce the size of some of the pages to 80-85% , they work great in an interactive reading journal. Look at the table of contents to see what all we included.
As always, if you have questions or concerns, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org before you purchase. HAPPY TEACHING!!!
