The Pirates Themed Activities were a lot of fun and the kids had a blast! They loved making Pirate Hats and Telescopes, Sorting coins and making patterns with these, going on a treasure hunt and making their very own Pirate story up and putting this in a big class book. The Pirates Big Class Story Book is great for developing your young learners’ narrative and fine-motor skills.
Pirates Big Class Story Book
What you need:
- A3 sheets of white paper
- A4 sheets of white paper
- A computer to type the story out
- Coloring pencils
How to complete the activity:
Explain to the children that you are going to write your own Pirate Story. Use a prompt such as ‘Once upon a time, there was a pirate named Blackbeard. Each child then ads a sentence to the story as the teacher writes these down.
Divide the class into pairs and split the story up into the same number as the pairs of children.
Give each pair an A4 sheet of paper and tell them what they need to draw and color for their story part (i.e.., a pirate ship, a sea monster etc.). During this time, the teacher writes each part of the story on A3 paper at the bottom. When the children are done drawing, the teacher pastes their illustrations on the right pages, assemble the book, then read it back to the kids.
