Distribute vocabulary sheet with “Jack and Annie Talk Like Pirates” side up
Read through vocabulary (both sides) with class
Ask students to repeat words and share how their families say these things (if applicable)
Explain the “Talk Like a Pirate” worksheet
Students will be assigned two unique words from the pages each
They will need to record the words on their papers when assigned.
Next, they must write down the definition of their assigned words (it’s okay to copy the vocabulary sheet verbatim, but don’t encourage this unless asked directly. For examples, don’t say, “copy down the definition”)
Next, students must think of an original sentence containing their assigned words.
When everyone is done, have each student present their words to the class by reading what’s written on the page. (You can them do one or both words, up to you and how much time you have left)
Example: “My word is ‘lubber’. This means, ‘a clumsy sailor’. My sentence is: If my little brother was a sailor, he would be a lubber because he is very clumsy (even on land).”
Review Chapter 3
Ask: What happened last?
Look at the title of Chapter 4: “Vile Booty”.
Define the word, “vile”.
Ask: Can someone think of an example of something that is “vile”?
Ask: What do you think will be the “vile booty” in the story?
Chapter 4 Read Chapter 4
Ask class to read Chapter 4 silently.
Questions for Discussion:
Ask: What did the pirates do after capturing Jack and Annie? What were they looking for? What did they find?
Ask:How did Jack and Annie feel about the pirates taking the medallion? It was not their medallion. Why do you think they cared about the medallion being taken?
Ask: What do you think was the “vile booty”? How do you know? Ask: Do you consider books to be ‘vile booty’? Why or why not?
Ask: If you were a pirate, what kind of booty would you search for?
Explain: Tomorrow we will talk more about the things we treasure. If your parent say it’s okay, you may bring ONE SMALL item from home that you enjoy very much. It can be a doll, or a card, or anything else. We will share about our items tomorrow.
If/When the students don’t bring in an item, it’s okay for them to just describe the item.
