Speak Like a Pirate Day

We had some fun Monday in honor of Speak Like a Pirate Day. I took pictures of each of my students wearing an eye patch and a pirate hat while they held on to a Fur Real parrot. Of course, they had to make a pirate-like face because pirates don't smile! Then they each wrote a super sentence using the pirate form from Mrs. Candau's super sentences freebie on her amazing website. Next, I made a page with their picture and lines above for them to write the final copy of their sentence on. (Our first "published" piece of writing!) Here is a sample of what one looked like.Microsoft Word - Pirate Jordan
The kids had a blast doing this and put a lot of effort into their sentences. Some were bummed I wanted to hang them up for a while instead of letting them take them home right away. This may be our first class book if I can convince them! :) I also read aloud Pirates Don't Change Diapers by Melinda Long. It was a fun day!

  1. Hi Erika-
    I'm so glad you found my blog! and I found yours! I wish I had a class pet but my co-teachers say I have enough pets at home I don't need anymore anywhere :) I toy with the idea quite a bit. A spider would be cool as I do a month of spiders in Oct. but I don't know if I could handle a spider all year as my pet :) You have a great blog and I love how we have some similar ideas going (clip chart, crate seats...) Thanks for following my blog and finding me!


Thanks for filling my bucket!
