Pre-K Pirate Storytime


  • What's a pirate's favorite letter in the alphabet?  Arrrrrr.  Practice talking like a pirate:  arggh, aye, me hearty, belay that!
  • Bring your mascara pencil to work, or get out the facepaints, and draw some curly moustaches on your attendees. 
  • End the storytime by having them "walk the plank" right out the door.

To the tune of "If You're Happy & You Know It" (Credit: Born Librarian)
If you're a pirate , swab the deck (swish, swish)
...walk the plank
...say Ahoy!

Zoom, zoom, zoom, we're hunting for doubloons.
Zoom, zoom, zoom, we're hunting for doubloons.
If you want to take a trip, climb aboard our rocket ship...

Have them wrap small objects like pebbles or styrofoam pieces in tinfoil to make treasure.
