Ahoy Matey! This pirate treasure beginning sounds activity is the perfect addition to your pirate theme lesson plans. Excite your kids with a fun pirate alphabet activity!
I am always looking for ways to increase engagement with activities and this pirate treasure beginning sounds activity was just the way to do that. My kids love all things pirates and treasure, as many kids do. And the fact that they could add coins to a treasure box was definitely a win.
Pirate Treasure Beginning Sounds Activity
While participating in this activity kids will practice identifying beginning letter sounds in words. They will sort coins with beginning sounds pictures on them to the corresponding pirate treasure chest. Each treasure chest has both an uppercase and a lowercase letter on it.
For younger children, I would suggest only using 2-3 treasure chests at a time. That way they don’t get overwhelmed by the amount of coins to sort out.
For older kids, you could definitely do more at one time. Something like 6-8 chests would be great. I like to use letters that my son could use some more practice with at the time.
Setting Up the Pirate Activity

- Pirate Beginning Sounds Printable (link to download at the bottom of the post)
- Circle Punch
- Laminator (optional)
- Laminating sheets (optional)
- Print the pirate treasure chests and corresponding coins.
- Cut the treasure chests apart on the line that divides them.
- There are two options for the coins. If you don’t have a circle punch and don’t want to purchase one, you can cut the coins apart on the lines and just use them that way. If you have a 1.5 or 2 inch circle punch, you can cut the coin pages apart on the lines that run horizontal (so you have strips of coins) and then punch them out.
My kids really enjoyed this pirate treasure beginning sounds activity! The pirate treasure really got them interested and engaged with the activity!
