How I Became A Pirate Literacy Unit

Ahoy, matey! I wanted to share my literacy unit for "How I Became A Pirate" by Melinda Long. The pirate theme is so much fun and the kids always have a blast. This story includes rich vocabulary  amazing pictures and keeps the kiddos engaged.  I like to break up reading the story by first showing them the front and back cover and reading a randomly selected expert from the story. Then, I have the kids make an inference as to what is going to happen in the story. I included some inference graphic organizers to use for this activity! Included in the packet are vocabulary words, graphic organizers, a draw your own treasure map and story elements organizer to supplement the story. Many of the items can be used during therapy sessions or sent home as homework. Hope you enjoy it! You can find the free download at my teachers pay teachers store HERE!

Have fun!
