Yesterday was “Talk Like a Pirate” Day. Mazy and Shark Girl have yet to experience our spontaneous learning events; we simply had to change that! (Krispy Kremes did motivate us for this one!)
After we watched a History Channel documentary on pirate ships, we created the Krispy Kreme flag using a black piece of paper, stick and white chalk.
The girls were so excited that when they arrived they forget why they were there! After some coaxing (Missy’s spelling word this week that she’s been using!) I managed to get the girl’s to say “Arggh, matey! “
Missy received a FULL dozen glazed donuts…the others received only one donut. It was a sugar fest for a while. Still, it was fun and the kids really did enjoy talking pirate the rest of the day.
