Pirate Motions
Movement Exploration
The	easiest	way	to	begin	creating	a	character	is	to	explore	different	ways	of	walking.		At	first,	everyone	
will	be	walking	as	himself	or	herself.		Later,	they	will	walk	like	pirates	might	walk.

Once	normal	walking	has	been	established,	ask	everyone	to	vary	their	walks.		Begin	by	giving	them	
specific	conditions	to	react	to:

	        •	Move	as	though	you	are	walking	in	sticky,	gooey	mud.
	        •	Walk	as	though	you	are	barefoot	on	hot	sand	at	the	beach.
	        •	Move	as	though	you	were	wading	through	water.
	        •	Move	as	though	you	were	seasick


Then	expand	by	having	them	react	to	different	environments:

	        •	Walk	as	though	you	are	going	through	a	jungle,	searching	for	buried	treasure,	with	
	        	       lots	of	bushes	and	vines	in	your	way.
	        •	Walk	as	though	you	are	trapped	in	prison,	and	cannot	escape.
	        •	Walk	as	if	you	were	sneaking	past	a	sleeping	guard	to	steal	the	keys	of	your	friend’s	
	        	       prison	cell,	and	you	don’t	want	to	wake	the	guard	up
	        •	Walk	as	though	you	woke	the	guard	up	and	he	is	running	after	you!
	        •	Turn	the	room	into	the	ocean,	and	have	them	sail	the	stormy	seas.

Face Paint Designs - Pirate
                                A	quick	and	easy	step	by	step	face	painting	guide	for	a	pirate.	This	one	uses	just	three	colours	of	face	
                                paint;	black,	orange	and	red	with	the	un-shaven	effect	achieved	using	a	stipple	sponge.	As	with	most	of	
                                the	designs	,it	is	aimed	at	a	quick	face	which	beginners	can	easily	master	with	a	bit	of	practice.



                                                   1.	Start	by	applying	black	with	a	stipple	sponge	to	the	lower	part	of	the	face	to	make	
                                                   	        stubble.		Pirates	don’t	shave	!!

                                                   				Make	one	eyebrow	thicker	using	black.




                                                   2.	Using	a	sponge	cover	the	other	eye	with	black	to	make	an	eye	patch.




                                                   3.	Still	using	a	sponge	add	orange	(or	any	color)	across	the	forehead	for	a	bandana.

                                                   4.	Outline	the	eye	patch	and	add	a	strap.

                                                   				Also	outline	the	bandana,	adding	a	couple	of	black	lines	across	the	orange	to	give			
                                                   				the	impression	of	the	material	being	folded	and	outline	the	knot.




                                                   5.	For	a	bloodthirsty	pirate	you	can	add	a	cut	or	scar.	Make	the	middle	of	the	red	
                                                   				line	thinker	than	either	end	and	outline	in	black.

                                                   				You	could	also	add	a	moustache	and	or	a	tattoo	on	an	arm.

As	the	tale	is	read,	use	the	words	in	      Redbeard’s Fishy Tale
parenthesis	to	guide	the	children	in	the	
telling	of	the	tale.                        Long	ago,	when	pirates	ruled	the	waves,	the	wicked	
                                            Redbeard	sat	grumpily	in	the	alehouse	listening	to	other	
                                            scurvy	pirates	telling	tall	tales	(Let’s see you all sitting
                                            grumpily).	One	cloaked	figure	was	speaking	of	a	special	
                                            treasure.	“A	fish”	he	breathed,	“made	out	of	pure	
                                            gold…sitting	just	two	hundred	yards	out	in	Dead	Man’s	
                                            Cove.”	Redbeard	barked,	“Liar!	If	‘twere	true	you’d	have	
                                            had	it	yourself!”		The	cloaked	pirate	bellowed	back,	“No	
                                            one	shall	dare	call	me	a	liar!”,	and	when	he	pulled	off	his	
                                            cloak,	all	who	saw	him	turned	pale	for	it	was	none	other	
                                            then	the	dreaded	Blackbeard	himself!		(Let’s all cower
                                            at the name of BLACKBEARD!)	Blackbeard	said,	“The	
                                            fish	has	a	curse	placed	upon	it-none	who	steal	it	survive	
                                            the	night!”	Redbeard	would	not	back	down.		He	barked,	
                                            “I’ll	wager	one	hundred	gold	doubloons	that	I	can	find	
                                            this	golden	fish!”		The	bet	was	on.

                                            Redbeard	sailed	to	Dead	Man’s	Cove	where	he	easily	
                                            found	the	golden	fish	and	brought	it	to	his	ship.	He	would	
                                            guard	it	till	morning	when	Blackbeard	would	come	to	
                                            his	ship	and	be	forced	to	give	him	the	hundred	gold	
                                            doubloons!		(Put your golden fish right beside you,
                                            and guard it carefully!)	That	night	Redbeard	woke	to	a	
                                            spooky	voice	whispering	“Put	me	back!” (Repeat those
                                            words in your spookiest fish voice)	He	looked	around	
                                            and	saw	no	person,	only	the	golden	fish.		Redbeard	
                                            rasped,	“I	shall	not,”	But	then	he	heard	the	voice	again,	
                                            louder.	“Put	me	back!”	 (Let’s hear it again!)	The	
                                            terrified,	but	resolute	pirate	moaned	“NEVER!”,	but	he	
                                            heard	the	voice	once	more.	“PUT	ME	BACK!”		(Be very

                                memorize	the	words	doesn’t	interfere	with	the	total	experience,	a	CD	is	provided	that	has	the	song	
                                orchestration	and	guide	vocals.

                                ACT I		
                                Teach	the	lyrics	and	rhythm	of	the	CHORUS	along	with	finger	play	choreography.		Teach	this	without	
                                the	CD,	using	just	the	children	to	create	the	soundtrack.

                                What is Finger Play Choreography?
                                By	linking	the	learning	of	lyrics	to	simple	movement,	we	help	the	children		memorize	faster,	while	
                                choreographing	at	the	same	time.	The	repetition	of	the	material	builds-in	rehearsal	time,	while	
                                becoming	thespringboard	from	which	all	classes		begin.	The	children	gain	self	esteem	
                                through		mastering		movement.	Repetition	is	the	key!

                                ACT II
                                Review	the	CHORUS	and	finger	play	choreography,	adding	the	playing	of	the	CD.	Teach	the	lyrics	and	
                                rhythm	of	the	BRIDGE.

                                ACT III
                                Review	everything	previously	taught	and	add	the	VERSE,	thereby	completing				the	learning	of	the	lyrics	
                                and	rhythm	of	the	entire	song.
