On September 19, we can all celebrate again....It is Talk-Like-A-Pirate Day! And there are so many wonderful things out there that will help you bring this to your library and school too.
Yarr, Pirate Maps.
I put in our Denver address and it created this pirate map with the red X on our house.
This would be fun to use as you prepare for Talk-Like-A-Pirate Day in your school. You could make a map marking the school, library, or classroom....and even mark a special location within your town.
All you have to do is type into the box what you want to say in pirate talk, click on Ahoy!....
and you have instant pirate talk to share with your students and friends.
It was simple. We just created a Padlet, shared the link with our students, and had them click on the wall to leave a message.
It is fun to look back at the Padlet to see all that our "Pirates" had to say and where each of them was located. You can check it out here too.
Another translator that will be fun to use on this day is Post Like A Pirate. It will translate your English into Pirate to be used for a tweet or text.
Now let's talk books and eResources all about pirates!
There are so many amazing children's books....fiction and nonfiction....about pirates. I love them all. They are funny, amusing, and captivate the attention of our young people.
Here is a post from the Fun A Day blog with 10 Children's Books About Pirates.
And one all about pirate books for young adults too at the Read, Breathe and Relax blog.
and there is so much more inside of the book.
I just saw that Mackin Educational Resources has put together a great list of print and digital books to celebrate Talk-Like-A-Pirate Day.
These are just a few of the things that will make your pirate day extra special....and a day that your students will never forget!
And just like our pirate friends say....
"Have fun celebratin' this very special pirate day!"
