We’re doing Pirates this March, and we’re gonna add in some real pirates actions! Come join us as we let loose our imaginations and spin some epic stories of our paintings!
We learnt about silhouettes for the first painting with the older kids. The kiddos chose their subject and settings. After the painting is completed, we wrote a short story based on the following:
One Describe your subject
Two Describe your setting
Three What is your subject doing there
Next, the kids get to choose what they want to do. William and Matilda chose to create their treasure maps and wrote up a storm!
Lastly, we will discuss with the children on how they want to end their stories, and how to incorporate the stories into their paintings!
Pelly the Daredevil Parrot by Matilda
Pelly the Daredevil Parrot
Pelly wants to be a pirate and loves dangerous adventure.
Pelly is at the Toxic Ocean full of Toxic Crocodiles, with a peaceful sky and a burning sun.
Pelly is trapped, unable to fly nor swim.
After escaping the Toxic Ocean and Burning Sun, she set out in search of food and a place to stay for the night and found herself on Seashell Island.
She left Seashell Island to explore Paradise Falls and found herself in Plum Forest. She ate all she could and kept some for dinner later.
Pelly then flew to Rocky Mountains and sat on the rocks to rest before she found Rainbow Shack. She really liked the place and decided to make Paradise Falls her home until she is ready to continue the rest of her journey.
Pelly left Paradise Falls and travelled to The Real City. She sat on the railing and it started to rain plums.
And so, her journey continues…
Chocolate the Pirate Pug by William
Chocolate the Pirate Pug
Chocolate the pug is lazy, loves books and video games.
The Lonely Ocean is very cold, and there are 25,000 known species of sharks.
He is sitting on a lonely log, in the Lonely Ocean, trying to find a power socket to charge his iPod.
Death Valley vs Candy Island
Chocolate the Pirate Pug hitched a ride from a shark, which brought him to a lonely island with a boat. The boat took him to Death Valley.
Chocolate found another lonely log and drifted to Candy Island, still in search of a power socket to charge his iPod. He stole some chocolate from the Chocolate Coin Bushes. He looked back over at Death Valley, but some Caramel Mountains obstructed his view.
So he went over to the mountains, and got his feet stuck when he tried to climb them. He ate 4 chocolate coins and used the wrappers as shoes.
He continued climbing with his new shoes, and finally found a power socket to charge his iPod.
After Chocolate the Pug found the power socket, he found another lonely log and drifted to the city of Savoury Food.
At the city, he found the secret, epic, awesome, radical, and even more secret Chocolate Mountains.
