Anyway, I got a little carried away with the whole pirate thing. We integrated pirates throughout the subject areas last week and it was so fun! Throughout the week we worked on a Pirate Lapbook I created. I have a confession. I LOVE lapbooks! I think they are the neatest way to organize and show case learning on a theme or topic. I feel like a lot of the worksheets I send home probably
This was the front of the lapbook :)
We started on the inside of our lapbooks with a "Pirates Can, Have, Are" organizer to activate our prior knowledge on the subject (hehe). Then the kids cut apart and colored pirate theme words to place in their treasure chest. The side flaps and a poem "Pirates ARRR!" that we wrote together, and a Pirate story problem. They had to solve with words, a picture, and a number sentence!
The back of the lapbook was maybe my favorite! We did a little Message in a Bottle writing craftivity. The kids pretended they were stranded on a deserted island and finished the prompt, "Help! I'm stranded on an island." They were so creative ... they wrote all about how pirates had left them on the island, what life was like on the island, and how hot and hungry they were! We crumpled up the scrolls to give an "aged" look and finished up with a layer of packing tape to give a glassy appearance! They turned out so cute!
Sound like fun? Check out the Pirate Lapbook at my TpT store!
And finally, I thought I'd link up with Classroom Freebies and share a fun little pirate themed Math Partner Game with you! This little game will help your little pirates practice their sums of ten! Enjoy!
