Aargh Mateys! Our Study of Pirates...

The past two weeks we have been learning about pirates and oh my goodness, my little ones are going NUTS over this!! I am surprised at how much even the girly-girls love it! Last week we made the glyph from Deanna Jump's unit (with a few changes):

I love this one's green teeth! So perfect for a pirate!

And then last Friday we made these adorable pirate ship snacks I found on Pinterest. I am way too addicted to Pinterest...

 Here is the link to where this originally came from. The cute little flags are on this website too.

So far this week we found a Treasure Map at school and had to follow it to find the buried treasure and our stuffed Ikea foods that the pirates had stolen! The kids had a blast with this and we turned it into a math activity by counting our "paces" and then equally dividing up the gold among the whole class.

And then today we colored in little pirates and I put their pictures as their faces on the pirates. They also had to write little speech bubbles of what their pirates would say:

I love to see how excited they are getting over this!! 
Tomorrow we have our field trip to the Strawberry Patch. I can't wait to post pictures of that too!
