How I Became a Pirate

Hello Everyone!

I could use some help! We are have a literacy night this week. I signed up to do the book How I Became a Pirate by David Shannon. We are supposed to read the book and do an activity with the kids. For those who have read the book, what kind of an activity have you done or do you think could be done with it?

Thanks for your suggestions!!

I have my grade ones draw what they think they would look like as a pirate. I ask them to include their ship and use lots of detail on their clothing and hair. Then we write a sentence or two about the pictures. The kids always get a big kick out of this activity and I enjoy watching their creativity come out (I do this in mid-September).

Could you make a pirate hat out of black paper? An eyepatch?
What would really be cool is to take a photo of each, print it off, and let them add mustache, beard, eyepatch, gold earring and hat to their own photo. This could be a great illustration for some writing later....."If I was a Pirate"

If you look for dltk-kids (.com) this website has some pirate crafts - a telescope, parrot, pirate ship out of a milk carton.

Ideas: Ask students to write about where they would hide or bury treasure to keep it safe. Have students create their own treasure maps.

this one seemed very good: http://www.roundrockisd.org/docs/122...ameapirate.pdf

just google it you'll find tons of helpful sites... good luck!

You could sing a pirate song. In the book, the pirates sing. I don't know what song would be appropriate though!

my students LOVE that book. I learned this song at my Responsive Classroom training and my students also love it.

When I was ___one___ [hold up number of fingers]
I had some ___fun___ [act out rhyming word]
On the day I went to sea [make wave motions with hands]
I jumped [jump] aboard a pirate ship
And the Captain said to me [hand over eye like eye patch]
Oh you go this way [sway left]
that way [sway right]
forward [lean forward]
backward [lean back]
over the deep blue sea. [make wave motions with hands]

So the lines with "one" and "fun" are fill in the blank. I frontloaded it by having my students think up rhymes for all the numbers up to 10, and show me how we could act it out. Then we voted on which we liked best and sang the song. It's adorable.

Great choice for you book. Have a fun literacy night!

Thank you all so much for your ideas! I think I'm going to use a mixture of all of them! I love the idea of the kids making themselves pirates and writing about it! I'm definately going to make it interactive by having cards with the pirate words for the kids to say and the song is terrific! I knew I could count on you all to help me out!

Check you tube for pirate songs. I am using this theme to start the year with in September this year. I have a puppet that I got from Melissa and Doug with a controllable arm and a mouth that easily opens and closes. He keeps scraching himself in rude places -- the kids have to remind him of his manners!! Veggies Tales has some sing a long songs on a CD that I got from amazon for less than $6 including shipping. (used) The song above is on one of Tom Hunter and Bev Bos' cd's from many years ago... I am not sure which one, but once you get the tune in your head, it will NOT leave! (You may be able to tell by now that I teach pre k and kindergarten) Knderplans has a song for "X" that is called "X Marks the Spot Rap" that is perfect!! The reason I decided to start the year this way is because September 16 is "Talk Like a Pirate Day" Too cool!
