More Pirates, Matey! {Freebie included!}

Disclaimer:  This post contains affiliate links to Amazon.com for your convenience.

During the last two weeks of school, I've been using a pirate theme in my sessions.  The kids have been having lots of fun with it!

Here are some of the books I've been using:

Of all the books, Pirate Pete was probably the favorite of the week!  I bought this book after reading this blog post from Jenna at Speech Room News (the cover is different, but the book looks to be the same).  

This book has pop-out pieces that you insert into a slot to tell your own version of the story!  Here's my son having fun with the book - he's adding a party hat to the girl pirate's head.

There are six pop in the slot pieces per page (I laminated them to make them more sturdy).  My kids each got to pick a different object/page and then they had to "read" the page with their object (e.g., "She had a party hat on her head!").

We played a few games this week too.  I used a variety of activities from some of my favorite SLP bloggers, including some from these packets:

In addition, I created these adorable boy/girl pirates with my Cricut Expression (They're from the Paper Doll Dress Up Cartridge).  I also created some pirate-themed object cards.  We took turns giving objects to the pirates and practicing pronoun use (e.g., "She has the spyglass" or "He has the map").

Don't have a Cricut?  No need to worry!  Here's a printable version of this activity that I created:

If you download, leave me a comment!  What are your favorite pirate-themed activities?


  1. This is great! Thank you! I have no time this morning to create a new sheet to go with the Pirate theme and this is perfect!

  2. I love the pirate theme! I'm collecting lots so that we can be speech pirates this year!

  3. Hello!
    I have an English academy and childrens bookshop here in Spain and when we do a pirate theme. we have the children make their own versión of the song "The Farmer's in the Dell" but changing the lyrics.
    they must think about the different ítems of clothing and things that the pirate s carry. It's also good to review the parts of the body.
    The children (with your help) can sing a line like for example
    "the hat is on his head! the hat is on his head! ooaarh ooaarh! (pirate speak!)the hat is on his head! You could also have boots on feet, sword in hand, parrots on shoulder, treasure in chest etcétera
    thanks for the download
    P.S. We are called The Learning Bus

  4. Love this! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Pop Up Pirate is a great pirate themed game to use with just about any skill you want to teach.
