Using the picture book ‘Pirate Pete’s Talk Like A Pirate’, students will read/hear a seemingly childish story. Within the story are several very advanced vocabulary words that the students may not understand. With modeling and encouragement, they will figure out the meaning of these words using context clues in the other text on the page. For an assessment, they will have to decode new unknown words using new text and a pirate map!
Perfect for Talk Like a Pirate Day, or any day you want to bring a bit of nautical fun to your classroom with a great mentor text!
