Arrr you excited for Talk Like a Pirate week? I definitely am!! This is always a fun time to be a little more silly and animated, have some extra fun, and still target all those speech and language goals. Kids love pirate themed activities and I will be sharing a few this week. I have six interactive pirate themed books that I use (the 4 below and two others including a Spanish version of the counting book).
All five are really fun and target vocabulary development, WH questions, of course the /r/ sound (arrrrr!), guessing shadows, and a Pirate, Pirate What Do You See? Also, for anyone who has purchased the Everyday Readers from Attainment, there is a pirate story in there as well. So my week will be filled with using my pirate books, pirate puppets (of course) and some fun pirate songs.
I also wanted to mention two other pirate themed activities from TLC Talk Shop on TpT. The pirate island has bingo games focusing on prepositions, pronouns, dauber pages, and pronoun sentence strips and manipulatives. The pirate play has three different open ended games with a pirate theme. Arrr you ready for some pirate fun!
And I love, love, love Barefoot Books. They are really fun sing-a-long books. The illustrations are beautiful and they come with a CD that makes reading/singing the books even more fun. They also have a pirate book that I use during Talk Like a Pirate week.
I will talk more about my FAVORITE books from Barefoot Books in another post (there are three that I adore!)
So enjoy the week and don’t forget to get your pirate on! Arrrrr! 🙂
