WH Question Pirates English & Spanish

A friend of mine's little girl in crazy about pirates!  I think this is too cute, since not many little girls I know are into them.  She had a pirate birthday party, dresses up like a pirate all the time, and even tries to talk like a pirate.  SO funny!

Even though there are lots of A-Mazing and fun speechie pirate activities floating around TPT and blogland, my new activity was made with my friend's daughter in mind.  Plus, a couple of my kids were talking about dressing up as pirates for Halloween, so I know this will be a big hit!  

A good amount of my students are working on WH questions.  They have difficulty answering questions appropriately as well as generating their own questions.  With common core, they are going to have to be able to question things they read and hear.  How can they do that if they can't even understand how to ask or answer basic questions appropriately and stay on topic?  

I needed to target this with my Spanish-speaking kids as well, so I made an English version and a Spanish version.  

Check them out! 
It comes with 60 question cards and 60 answer cards that target WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, and WHY questions.  Aren't they so cute?  I love the parrots.  :)  I used a different picture for each type of question, so you can easily only use the questions you want to work on.

You can't have a game without wild cards, so we have a treasure chest and a pirate skull!
One thing I like about this game is that you can play it several different ways.  One way is to play it like memory and match the questions to the answers.  Add a couple wild cards in there to make it more fun!

Another way to play is by only using the question cards, and have the kids respond appropriately to the questions.  OR only use the answer cards, and have them generate their own questions.  The students can draw a card.  If they respond correctly, they keep the card.  If they respond incorrectly, another student gets a try.  Don't forget to add in the wild cards and follow the directions if one is drawn.  Whoever has the most cards when they run out is the winner.

You can find it at my TPT store HERE.

The Spanish version is exactly the same, except the questions and answers are in Spanish (obviously).  ;)

It uses all the same cute pictures and rules.

You can find the Spanish WH Question Pirates game at my TPT store HERE.

Hope these help y'all with your bilingual kiddos!


  1. My niece loves pirates (since she watched Dora's Pirate Adventure) and just had a pirate birthday. It's really cute to see little girls who like the pirates.

    I added the bilingual packet to my looks (very cute and) useful! I'm always on the hunt for Spanish materials.
