This book can be used to teach so many skills. It is great for teaching sequencing and ordering of events. The illustrations are leading and help students to predict what will happen next in the story.
I decided to put together some essential graphic organizers for "There Was An Old Pirate Who Swallowed a Fish". This no-prep literature study is great for back to school or anytime during the school year. Included in this packet are no-prep printables and interactive journal pages that will keep your students engaged and excited! This unit is great for that busy time of the year and for last minute sub activities! I have listed below what is included in the packet.
Activities for There Was An Old Pirate Who Swallowed A Fish is available on TpT for only $3.00.
I even decided to make a "pirate" snack to go along with the book. This snack is super easy to make and super delicious to eat! The ingredients are easy to find and very inexpensive. Just start with purchasing vanilla pudding cups, graham crackers, and mini Nutter Butter cookies. Next, put one long graham cracker into a Ziploc bag. Then, have students smash the graham cracker until it becomes a sandy texture. Finally, have students put one mini Nutter Butter cookie into the pudding cup. To add more of a pirate touch... small toothpick pirate flags can be found at party supply stores.
