If you have a new reader who loves to read about pirates, check out these easy pirate books for kids. You can download and print for free!
Have you seen our giant collection of sight word books? I’ve been creating these books for almost three years now, and we’re on set 34! Each set comes with four books that teach one or several new sight words.
Today’s set is a collection of pirate books for kids. The new sight words are where, by, and be.
When I began creating these books, I was teaching my kindergartner and preschooler to read. Those two boys are now in first grade and kindergarten. My Seven can read almost anything he gets his hands on. My Five is doing exceptionally well, too.
Our next child is going on four, and isn’t learning at the pace his older brothers did. We are working at concepts of print before we tackle sight word books.
Why am I telling you all this?
Because these books really aren’t for my family right now. 🙂 They’re for you! I look forward to the day when my Three is ready to use the series himself.
Until then, enjoy the new sets!
Even though these are too easy for him, my Five likes seeing the new books and is willing to read them for a few pictures. 🙂
Let’s take a peek at one of the books!
On this page your child will review the sight words the, on, are, and for. He’ll need to use context clues to figure out looking and some basic phonics to read the word land.
Old sight words include this, has, a, is, and the. Where is a new sight word for this book. Can your child figure out spy glass with the picture clue? Encourage him to use the beginning letter of a new word as a clue.
Encourage your child to read with expression by modeling how to read sentences that end with an exclamation mark. Also show your child how to pause between sentences.
You’ll notice that this book doesn’t feature the new sight words very much. In order to keep the stories authentic and not forced, I don’t cram as many of the new sight words into the books as I can. However, when read as a set, you’ll find that your child gets plenty of exposure to all three of the new sight words.
We hope you enjoy these four pirate books for kids!
