This literature guide is to be used with the picture book, A PIRATE'S MOTHER GOOSE, written by Nancy I. Sanders with art by Colin Jack. (Published September 1, 2015 by Albert Whitman and Company).
Written to support the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts, this educator's guide is geared for the kindergarten, first grade, and second grade classroom.
As the author of A PIRATE'S MOTHER GOOSE, I prepared this guide and aligned the learning activities to support the standards so you can implement this book into your classroom! In this guide you'll find:
* Haiku writing activity
* Pull-through craftivity with pairs of rhyming words
* Venn Diagram to compare and contrast pirate rhymes with original nursery rhymes
* Printable vocabulary cards of rhyming word pairs found in A PIRATE'S MOTHER GOOSE for playing a vocabulary matching game
* 22 Read, Write, and Draw sheets for students to gain reading fluency and learn 22 Mother Goose nursery rhymes
What a great resource to implement into your classroom to celebrate International Talk Like a Pirate Day on September 19 each year. What a great way to support the Common Core!
If you want to continue the learning with a pirate theme in your classroom in September or any month of the year, be sure to get our 204-page Math, Literacy, and Science unit, YO HO HO! A PIRATE UNIT WITH TONS OF FUN. Geared to support the Common Core, it's available in our store, Teacher Plus Writer, here at this site.
