1-2-3 Come Have Fun Becoming a Pirate and Writing With Me!
Since pirates continue to be an extremely popular theme, I've been working on a variety of activities this week.
I just completed these two, so if you are looking for a fun writing prompt before students leave for spring break, I think your students will enjoy making a class book entitled: Arrrr You Ready For Spring Break?
If your spring break has come and gone, you can make this booklet in May or June and have students write about what they are going to be doing over the summer.
This class book is entitled: Arrrr You Ready For Summer Vacation?
I've included insert pages for both. There's a girl pirate page, as well as one for the boys.
Students trace the beginning sentence and then complete the thought.
When they are done, they illustrate their page.
Make the book even more of a keepsake by having students glue their school picture over the face of the pirate and then color it.
Collect the pages, laminate and collate the book.
Make sure you do a sample for yourself as well.
When you read the book to your class, have each student come up and read their own page.
Making a monthly class book is a wonderful way to show student progress and are great items to set out for Parent-Teacher conferences.

Thanks for visiting today. Be sure and check back in a week to see what other pirate things I've designed, and if you're into "mustache mania" you'll love the mustache activities I'll be posting tomorrow!
Feel free to PIN anything you think others might find helpful.

Let’s celebrate the DAYS…
That’s it for the DAYS…
Now for the WEEKLY celebrations…
Celebrating all MONTH long:
I hope some of these national day, week and month-long celebrations get your students enthused about writing. I truly believe that if students are excited about a topic they will WANT to write. The more they write the better they'll get. The better they write, the more they'll want to write. It's like the proverbial snowball rolling down the hill.
Since it's almost springtime, let's use the analogy of a pebble thrown into a thawing pond where the ripples continue to reverberate! So, as always, by all means....
