Talk like a Pirate Day is a celebration of multiple days of hard work! The crew worked together to write the class constitution of rules. They learned about the founding fathers of our country and the hard work they did over 200 years ago writing the U.S. constitution. We started the week with the Preamble that many of the crew created LAST year.
Then the crew began writing and sharing in pairs and in groups early in the week!
The crew shared their thinking with our First Mate who wrote all the ideas out on the chart. This was a big job! This is what we used to talk and agree and disagree about what would go into our constitution. Some ideas were similar so we could combine them and some ideas needed changing.
When it was done it was time to sign the constitution and celebrate Pirate Day! Of course we had to start the day dressed in our Pirate gear!!
Time to sign the constitution!!
We practiced talking like a pirate with finger puppets! The crew had to learn new vocabulary words, learn to understand “pirate” language, then turn and “english” words into “pirate words.”
Of course we needed to read LOTS of pirate books!
WE are the Pirate crew- sailing the world with good character- ready to change the WORLD!
