International Talk Like a Pirate Day

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

Avast ye mateys! Thursday is International Talk Like a Pirate Day...There really is a day for everything! I may be one of the few SLPs NOT doing anything in my speech room to commemorate this day. I just started seeing kids on Monday and am very busy collecting baseline data. Since we end the year later than other states, I typically reserve the "fun themes" (Pirates, Super Heroes, Dinosaurs, etc.) for the end of the year.

I digress! I figured I would share some Pirate themed activities, books, and games for those of you who do plan on celebrating!

Favorite Pirate Books:

I wrote a blog post about how I use "There Was an Old Pirate Who Swallowed a Fish."  There are free printables included.  You can find that post HERE.  I also wrote a post on Pirate Pete and a Pirate themed pronoun activity (FREE), which you can download HERE.

Favorite Pirate Games:

I know that Cariboo isn't necessarily a pirate game, but because there's a treasure chest, most of my students call it "The Pirate Game."  I have the old version and frequently swap out the images to target seasonal/thematic vocabulary, articulation, SVO sentence structure, etc.  Also, if you're looking for a fun way to increase trials in articulation practice, what could be more fun than counting out 100 gold doubloons and having students place them in a treasure chest bank for each correct trial?!?

Looking for more pirate themed activities?  Check out my Pirate Pinterest Board!

Have a swash-buckling great day!

PS, I haven't checked out Pirate Talk from Super Duper yet, but it looks amazing! ;)

  1. therapy centres in Manchester is the The British Medical Association acknowledged & approved the use of hypnotherapy as a valid medical treatment to improve health in 1955,understanding the effectiveness of it as discovered by "James Braid", used by "Sigmund Freud". A hypnotic trance is said to be "experienced by 99.9% of the world on a daily basis", which can actually be seen. Health of all our clients is a priority as it effects our future business. The hypnotic trance entered occurs at the time of awakening i.e. the state of mind between 'sleep' and being 'conscious'.
