Ships and Sailors

Why Do Pirates Wear Eye Patches? We had so much fun making our predictions. Check out the video below to find the real reason. We also learned that pirates believed that wearing earrings gave them better eyesight. Today was filled with pirate stations as it was Talk Like a Pirate Day!

This was a cute song that my first graders loved singing today.

Jack Hartmann is always great!

I have a little boy who just loves Jake and the Never Land Pirates. You should have seen him singing along. TOO cute!

I used many FREE tpt units by searching pirates and found a great pirate dictionary. We played ships and sailors, made oil pastel pirates, wore glitter tattoos, read many pirate books and even had cupcakes.


Did you know if you are dressed like a pirate and go to Krispy Kreme you can get a dozen FREE doughnuts. If you just talk like a pirate you will recieve one free pirate doughnut.
