This 73 page book is sure to be a firm favourite for those teaching a pirate themed curriculum. I used it as printed copies to be held by the children in small group reading but it could also be used on a whiteboard for whole class teaching and read alouds. It uses simple language to promote reading by children as well as topic based words to increase vocabulary understanding and usage. The feedback from the children was that it was an exciting book with plenty of action and it certainly held their interest and was referred to throughout the entire period of our topic.
The book was read in stages over a two week period and specifically developed the practice of reading colour words in context. There was lots of opportunity for children to give their ideas about what might happen next and to recall what had happened previously.
Lesson plans containing instructions for using this book as well as other pirate and colour based resources from my store are available as a download from my blog post: http://pempispalace.blogspot.co.uk/2014/08/throwback-thursday.html
