Shiver me Timbers! Talk Like a Pirate Day Linky Party

Ahoy Matey! Happy National Talk Like a Pirate Day! I don't know about you, but my kiddos and I enjoyed ourselves today.

The celebration started this afternoon. We read my favorite pirate book, Dirty Joe, The Pirate by Bill Harley.

We then created our own pirate names, made pirate eye-patches, then we had to Walk the Plank while we practiced our pirate vocabulary. We also worked on a little pirate math thanks to my lovely blogging buddy, Laura..

We then enjoyed our Pirate Booty (and cookies) and told a tale about our parrot.

So me hearties, what did you to for Pirate Day? Shiver me Timbers and link up below to share your tales from the day. (All those that link up will receive some pirate booty from me.)


  1. Great pictures!

  2. Looks like your mateys had a day loaded with pirate's booty! Thank you again for the inspiration to be creative and have fun after a week of cognitive testing! Thank you so much too for the shout out, your friendship is the best treasure in town! Hope your pirates and you have a splendid Friday!

  3. I have never read Dirty Joe the Pirate. I must check this out. Your class looked like they had a great day today. I love the Walk the Plank idea. I just scooped that and all of your other ideas up for next year! Thanks so much for sharing!
