It is summer and we decided to have a pirate of a time. We stared it out with the book How I became a Pirate by Melinda Long and David Shannon. All the little mateies loved the book.
Then we found this great song by Andy Z a Pirate Song. Here is his YouTube video.
To become pirates ourselves the children made their very own newspaper pirate hats. We even put a P on them for Pirate.
They played pirate ship in the water table
So we could see what it would be like to be a pirate with a hook. Children had to hook bracelets with the pirate hooks with out using their hands.
We are still not done with Pirates so there will be more to come.
