Weekly Theme: Pirates (February 28th-March 4th, 2022)
Arrr you ready for pirate week?! We sure are! We have so many great books to explore including How I Became a Pirate by Melinda Long, I Love My Pirate Papa by Laura Leuck, Pirates Love Underpants by Claire Freedman, The Pirates Next Door by Johnny Duddle, and Pp by Bruce Larkin.
This week, we'll be learning if a pirate's life is really for us. We will make our own pirate chests and practice counting coins while we talk about what a pirate's daily life would be like. We will also be creating our own life-size pirate portraits!
What outfits come to mind when you think of pirates? I always think of eye patches and a pierced ear and, of course, a trusty and talkative parrot. It's believed that pirates thought a pierced ear would improve their eyesight!
