Wacky Wednesday Book Club: How I Became A Pirate


Hey friends! Happy Wednesday! I hope all of you enjoyed the Back to School sale and found lots of awesome deals. 

I need to confess... I love pirates! Talk Like A Pirate Day in September is one of my favorite days during the year. The kids get so excited because group becomes a little different. We make up pirate names for each other and wear eye patches. One of the books we love to read is... 


This book is about a little boy, named Jeremy Jacob, who is at the beach with his family until the pirates show up and take him away. They need his help. On his journey he learns how to talk like a pirate and act like a pirate, but he also learns there are no books or good night kisses on the ship. Jeremy decides he does not want to be a pirate, he just wants to go home to his family. 

I created a companion to accompany this book which covers a little bit of everything!


There is a worksheet to identify story elements.


There are two sequencing activities: 



There are 24 comprehension question cards and 3 additional blank cards for you to add what you need. There is also 8 yes/no questions included. 


Next, there are 15 tier two vocabulary cards with 3 answer choices plus an additional 3 blank cards for you to add what you need. Your students will use context clues within the sentence to identify the meaning of the words.


Jeremy learns some pretty awful manners from the pirates, so I included an activity to talk about good manner/bad manners.


We couldn't forget about the Pirate vocabulary! There are 11 pirate words with matching definition cards and 2 additional cards. 


I have many students who work on sentence structure and verb tenses. There is a past, present, and future sorting activity with 24 verb cards. 


And 16 irregular verb cards with 3 answer choices.


Next we have sentence scramble, which includes 6 color coded sentences. Students will arrange the words into the correct order to formulate sentences. 


There are 4 describing mats, articulation worksheets, and an open ended game included.

You can grab this packet in my TPT store.

I can't wait to pull this packet out next month. What fun pirate crafts or activities do you do with your students to celebrate Talk Like A Pirate Day?
