Pirate Day 2017

Funny Pirate quotes

Arrgh mateys!  It's International Talk Like a Pirate Day!  I've been celebrating Pirate Day since 2014.  I think I've perfected it!
(My apologies - I did not write a blog entry last year, but we did celebrate it!)

As always, I dressed up for the occasion!




As the kids came in my room, they all cracked up!  We had a BLAST!

Before school, I went up to the library and grabbed a ton of pirate books. 

I read one of them first thing this morning:

A Pirate's Guide to First Grade can be bought on Amazon!

I'll admit, this was one book I had never read before.  In the middle of the story, a light bulb went off in my head!  I had my students create their own pirate's guide to first grade!  They each wrote and illustrated a page.  They told me or my co-teacher what they wanted to write.  We wrote it out on a whiteboard if they needed it.

Here they are hard at work!


(That's my co-teacher at the table with them!)

When the students were done with their page, they worked on pirate missing numbers and other pirate things.  





*By the way, 3 of my kiddos wore pirate outfits today!*
 They were absolutely adorable!!!

I borrowed a co-worker's treasure chest full of *fake* gold coins.  (Thanks Barb!)  I told the students I would lock it in my room during lunch and recess so no one could take it. THEY were shocked when we came back from lunch and it was gone!  In it's place was a note - which led us on a wild goose chase around the building looking for our gold!













I can't believe I didn't take pictures of this, but we did a 5 senses writing involving pirate's booty!  It was so fun (and tasty!)

The rest of the afternoon involved lots of pirate books, labeling pirates, pirate ABC order, and watching Reading Rainbow: Sunken Treasure!

It was a such a great day!

Until next time!
