I Know a Little Hermit Crab! (Tune: I’m a Little Teapot)
I know a little hermit crab who lives by the sea,
Whenever I go out there, he takes a stab at me.
Out come his pinchers to nab my toe,
But he never gets to grab me ‘cause he’s so slow!

Developed by Alisha Das
“ During the 2001-2002 school year, I had an LEP student with vision problems. He began to learn to associate sounds/symbols and connect these with words/meanings using this method. It was amazing! After only 1 week, he was able to identify the letters in his name and several words. He was also able to write them correctly! This was so amazing because NOTHING else had worked. When my assistant and I used this method, we were so amazed we actually cried! For the first time, this student began to show progress and was actually learning!!!!”
