We celebrate September 19th each year with International Talk Like a Pirate Day. We dress up, make our own treasure maps, view and listen to the story How I Became a Pirate, learn some preschool appropriate piratey phrases, learn about navigational tools like a compass, and go on a treasure hunt.
|Me with some of my piratey friends.|
|Treasure map provocation|
|Each child could create their own treasure map.|
|We began following the master treasure map|
in search of buried treasure.
|It led to the sandbox where everyone began digging...|
|...and treasure was unearthed.|
|This amazing "Jolly Roger" was gifted to us by|
a former preschool family.
