Pirate Day

- I put pirate hats and eye patches, mustaches and tattoos in the workboxes.
- They made up pirate names for each other (Ezra was Barnacle Breath, Charlie was Captain Black Beard, Scarlet was Pirate Pink, and Jane was Pirate Parrot).
- We learned this scripture for devotional:
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Matthew 6:21
- They each created a pirate flag.
- We learned pirate talk. Words like, Ahoy, aye, ARRRRRR, matey, shiver me timbers, land lubber, doubloon, jolly roger, scallywag… 
- We read a few pirate library books. 
- We labeled the parts of a ship.
- We learned some pirate history.
- We talked about how pirates dressed. 
- We identified the seven seas on a world map. 
- We looked up a bunch of different kinds of parrots- Scarlet Macaw, Ground Parrot, Senegal Parrot, Rainbow Lorikeet, Eclectus Parrot, Blue Footed Parrot, Yellow-collared Lovebird, Hyacinth Macaw, and Congo African Gray Parrot. 
- We wrote short pirate stories.
- We talked about what a stereotype is.
- We listened to some pirate shanties.
- We started memorizing the poem, Needles and Pins by Shel Silverstein
- We made treasure maps.
- We put together a lap book of everything we learned on Pirate Day.
