Sing a Song

Looking for Treasure
(Tune: Twinkle Twinkle Little Star)

I’m looking for treasure, yesiree!
Want to come along with me?
We can look for coins of gold
“X” marks the spot so we’ve been told.
We’ll bring a shovel to dig, dig, dig
If we find some we’ll dance a jig!


If you want to be a pirate – The Kiboomers

Try This

Make up a song about pirates and sing it together. Singing helps kids prepare for reading by learning to hear syllables, and introduces rhythm, rhyme, and even helps develop vocabulary.
