Ahoy Matey! Pirate-Themed Speech and Language Activities

speech and language activities for International Talk Like a Pirate Day

Shiver me timbers mateys!! Tomorrow (September 19th) is International Talk Like a Pirate Day! Have some fun celebrating with your students with these pirate-themed activities:

There's a Pirate Pronouns activity:

To target receptive skills, cut apart the pictures and put one on the circle. Tell your students where to place other pictures (on the squares) to see how well they understand various pronoun words. Expressively, you can place pictures on the squares and have your students use pronoun words to describe where the picture has been placed.

There's also a Pirate Speak-tionary included! Find a list of must-use words and phrases to help you sound like a real pirate. There are also flash cards to match the words to their definition. And a worksheet to define words and use them in sentences.

Despite their gruff voices, it's important for pirates to speak clearly! So have your pirates-in-training use these articulation drill sheets to practice their target words.

Little Pirates can also use these open-ended point cards alongside any speech or language activity to make things more exciting. Cards range in value from 1 to 3 points, and there are also bonus cards and foil cards included.

Two just-for-fun activities are also included. Three different roll-and-color sheets as well as large and small versions of an open-ended board game. You can pick up the roll-and-color sheets for {FREE} here in my TpT store.

There you have it me hearties!! I hope you have a super wild and fun International Talk Like a Pirate Day tomorrow! You can find the full activity packet here. Enjoy 15% off through September 19th! Yo-ho-ho!
