lately, so this lapbook was a HUGE hit in our
house as we studied about pirates and had fun
dressing up and playing them too!

All of the printables that you will need to make
this lapbook are listed here on this page. We used
the book
On a Pirate Ship by Sarah Courtauld and
Benji Davies as the basis for our learning, but
there are other great books too.
Pictures of our Pirate Lapbook
Print off as many {or as
few} of the printables as
you would like ~ it's
your lapbook. Just have
fun with your little one
and enjoy the process
Quick tip

Print off lapbook pieces
onto cardstock, especially
if you are working with
younger preschoolers. The
pieces will be more sturdy
and last if you are planning
to pull it out and use it
again. Of course,
laminating is always an
added bonus!

Inside of the completed
pirate lapbook
This is how we pieced our lapbook together.
Our lapbook is simply a file folder {no fancy
folding} and we used a glue stick to piece it
all together. We three hole punched it so it
would fit in a binder for storage.

Front cover: Our son wrote/traced his name
and we also had a summary {his words}
about the story.

Back cover: The Find the Treasure game
board. I laminated the pieces individually
and then together and glued it to the back of
the book.

Inside: The mini books of Parrot Colors,
Bags of Gold, our Bible verse, Pirate ABC's
and Pirate Words along with an oversized
pocket {half of a 9x12 sized envelope}.

The pocket holds our popsicle stick puppets,
pirate ship size sequencing and our extra
Bible verse card {the 4x6 sized one}.
Ready to make your own?
Your preschooler will have fun learning and practicing basic skills such as identifying color names,
counting from 1-10 {with 1:1 correspondence}, sequencing from little to big, identifying and
matching upper and lowercase letters, summarizing a story, practicing their name, learning
Scripture, identifying pirate words, pretending with pirate puppets, sequencing pirate ships by size
and even playing a pirate board game! Print off an extra page of the word cards to play a matching
