Thursday is National Talk Like A Pirate Day, arrrrgh! With such a fun day to celebrate, I wanted to share some materials and resources that you can use to help make your day extra piratey 🙂
There are many great pirate themed books but these are my favorite to use:
This is a cute and engaging story that tells about a boy’s crazy day when he become a pirate. This is great to use for sequencing events. You can read more about it HERE.
This book was actually written by an SLP. It is a very cute way for students to practice the great /R/ and they travel the high seas. You can read it’s description HERE.
When the Jolley-Rogers move into the town of Dull-on-Sea everyone starts talking. This is a such cute book and has some nice messages of acceptiance and not jumping to conclusions. You can read more about it HERE.
Speech and Langauge Activities
Crazy Speech World has some great Pirate themed activities to use all week long. Pirate Language Activities, Pirate Articulation Activities, and a book companion for How I Became a Pirate will have you set up. She has even put them conveiniently into a bundle pack you can find HERE.
The Buckeye Speech Path has pirate games for synonyms, antonyms, and even pirate UNO. Check them out HERE.
1sparkleslp has a fun pirate following activity. There are cards for 1, 2, and 3 step directions. Check it out HERE.
And just because you are on the high seas doesn’t mean you can forget to use those pragmatic skills! You can grab my pirate themed Social Cause and Effect which will also be 20% Wednesday and Thursday.
What would Talk Like a Pirate Day be without some pirate crafts. Here are some easy and quick ones I found on Pinterest.
2. Make Your Own Sailing Ship ( maybe you could decorate the flag with some speech sounds )
I hope these resources help to fill your day with adventure, treasure, and good speech.
What’s your favorite pirate activity?
