Preschool Storytime: Pirates!

Rhyming Song- Pirate Ship (Tune of Row, row, row your boat)

Sail, sail, sail your ship

Gently o’er the sea

Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily

A pirate’s life for me.

Action Rhyme- Ten Little Pirates

Ten little pirates stood in a row hold up all ten fingers

And then they bowed to their captain so lower and raise fingers

They marched to the left march hands to left (or opposite since kids mirror you)

Then they marched to the right march hands to left (or opposite)

They shouted yoo hoo! cup hands over mouth

And gave their captain a fright act scared, cover mouth with hands
