Kindergarten Math and Literacy Printables: Pirate Theme. This resource has 30 pages of Common Core based math and literacy activities for kindergarten. It contains some beginning activities (such as upper and lower case letter matching, beginning sounds, and counting numbers 1-10), as well as activities that can be used throughout the year (such as addition, subtraction, CVC words, and sight words).
This set contains the following pages:
* "Seaworthy Scramble." Students make CVC words from the -ot family.
* "High Seas Scramble." Students make CVC words from the -ug family.

This resource addresses the following Common Core Standards* for Math and Literacy in Kindergarten:
RF.K.1a Follow words from left to right, top to bottom, and page by page.
RF.K.1b Recognize that spoken words are represented in written language by specific sequences of letters.

RF.K.2e Add or substitute individual sounds (phonemes) in simple, one-syllable words to make new words.
RF.K.3a Demonstrate basic knowledge of one-to-one letter-sound correspondences by producing the primary sound or many of the most frequent sounds for each consonant.
RF.K.3b Associate the long and short sounds with the common spellings (graphemes) for the five major vowels.

K.OA.A.1 Represent addition and subtraction with objects, fingers, mental images, drawings1, sounds (e.g., claps), acting out situations, verbal explanations, expressions, or equations.
K.OA.A.5 Fluently add and subtract within 5.
K.NBT.A.1 Compose and decompose numbers from 11 to 19 into ten ones and some further ones. K.G.A.1 Describe objects in the environment using names of shape.
