"putting a shell in each chain" Almost!

Actually you work the shell stitches into the space below the chain-one stitch. It is a subtle but noticeable difference in the appearance of the fabric.

Place your hook into the space below the chain stitch, yarn over, pull trough and complete your SC, chain one, then start the DC in the same way you started the SC.
