ACTIVITIES FOR KINDERGARTEN THROUGH 4TH GRADE
The activities can be used in kindergarten through 4th grade.
Kindergarten and First graders will enjoy singing the song and saying the pirate chant. They can act out the words and move freely to the song. And they will love coloring the lyric sheet they can take home so that they can perform it for their family.
The game is for 2nd grade through 4th grade students.
There are 2 versions of the “A Sailor Went to Sea” song to use with different grade levels.
There is a lesson planning sheet in the file for you to organize how you want to do all the activities.
Finally, it’s always fun to have the students perform for each other! And, you may have some opportunities for solos too!
I’m hoping that this Free Resource will help you organize your music and movement activities for “Talk Like a Pirate” Day.

WHY USE MOVEMENT ACTIVITIES?
Dance, Freeze and Body Percussion as well as Scarf movement activities increase Reading skills. These types of activities help students with tracking, concept identification, visualization, and sequencing.
Why not take a break from things and move like a pirate?
Short breaks help students exercise gross motor skills, stay focused, burn energy and have fun. Creative movement activities provide opportunities to also practice social and team working skills and experience positive exercise!
Creative movement strengthens students’ abilities to CREATE, PERFORM, RESPOND, and CONNECT to learning goals because movement activities ask them to imagine, analyze, and express and:
- Movement is a natural way for children to respond to music.
- Movement is how many children learn.
- Movement makes aural sound more real.
Creative movement activities provide opportunities for students to exercise fine and gross motor skills, practice social and team working skills and experience positive exercise!
