I love when teachers share ideas for the benefit of all children! It really does take a village to raise the children in our SCHOOLS, not just the children in our class. And, in truth, aren't ALL children "ours", not just the particular ones that fill the seats within the walls of our classrooms?
All this to say that when I come across units that teachers have shared online I get excited! Whether it is material I purchase through Teachers Pay Teachers or find on a blog...I love seeing how others approach thematic instruction or a certain standard/skill in their class. And, it is especially exciting when a teacher is generous enough to share their unit for free.
Today, in preparing for a"Pirate/Princess" themed Summer Camp, we found two resources with some really good stuff in them! I would like to provide you with the links to their free downloads so if you are looking for some Preschool Pirate activities you can find some resources that have already been created! I will continue to post things we plan and find on Pinterest!
Please visit these two links to download complete Pirate Packets!

I cut them out and taped them to wooden sticks for our preschoolers to use.
Thanks to this blog for sharing the idea of the pirate ship and the Backyardigans!! Another great resource for Pirate planning can be found on Speech Room News.
