Pirates! Day 3 with FREE printables

The girls were so excited to begin school that they headed to the school room before breakfast and still in their pajamas! I always have a "warm-up" activity waiting for them on the table. Today was a pirate color by number sheet.

Our book of the day was Pirate Pete's Talk Like A Pirate! We've read a lot of pirate books during this unit and this one was my FAVORITE! It is hilarious and I couldn't get enough of it!

Review from Amazon: In this new adventure, Pete has a wonderful new ship, but no crew. But not just any crew will do. As Pete explains:

“Ye gots to be stubborn and mighty cranky,
Ye gots to be dirty and awfully stanky!
Ye gots to load a cannon and know how to fire it,
But most of all, ye gots to talk
like a pirate!”

One by one Pete interviews his potential crew, and one by one they get the boot! Whoever will he find to help him sail the high seas? A hilarious and fun-to-read-aloud book that will have every child talking like a pirate.

Ye looks like a pirate, but oh, no! Ye don't talk like a pirate!

Ye gots to walk the plank!

Izzie had a blast acting out the story...she loved that she had to walk the plank and plunge into the ocean! However, Mac wanted nothing to do with walking the plank! She was very excited about climbing up on the table, but would begin to cry every time I mentioned "walking the plank".

Activities for the day:

Matching capital and lowercase gold coin letters.

Izzie wrote her alphabet and drew a picture of a pirate ship.

Parrot coloring with letter "p" writing practice at bottom.

Reviewing colors with this adorable parrot booklet.

Measuring activity.

Comparing the length of her feather to various objects...determining if the feather is shorter, longer, or the same length as the object.
