Talk Like a Pirate
Pirate themed Task Cards for Dictionary Skill practice! (24 task cards in both color and line art, recording sheet, and answer key)
This is a fun way to practice dictionary skills while celebrating Talk Like a Pirate Day, but can certainly be used any time of the year. It works best as an individual or partner activity during literacy centers.
Each card has a “pirate” word or phrase at the top of the card. Below it, students will find three choices as to the meaning of the word(s). Students will use a print or online dictionary to discover or confirm the meaning of each and record their answer on the sheet provided.
If working in partners, have one student record their predictions of the meaning and the other record their actual meanings.
A key has been provided for you or so that students can be directed to self-check upon completion.
