Shiver Me Letters!

Are you looking for an alphabet activity to share with your little ones? Here’s an art project that I came up with last week. My grandbaby and I had lots of fun talking like pirates too:

The directions are simple!

Read this story:

Shiver Me Letters
A Pirate ABC

Written by June Sobel
Illustrations by Henry Cole

The captain of this brave and bumbling pirate crew has ordered them to capture the entire alphabet--and they'll walk the plank if they're missing a single letter! Now these swashbuckling mateys are embarking on an alphabet adventure unlike any other, and they won't (ahem, can't) rest until they've found an A, a Z, and everything in between.

June Sobel's hilarious text and Henry Cole's adventurous animal pirates harmonize in an irresistible book for alphabet-learning, pirate-loving kids everywhere.

Make a pirate hat out of construction paper and glue. It doesn't have to be perfect! Print the ABC letters from WordArt, and paint or cut out the yellow trim.

Note: Allow fifteen to twenty minutes for the glue to dry.

(We also learned about parrots and did a color sheet.)
