Ahoy Me Hearties!

This week in Storytown we learned about the sound /ar/.  Today we had pirate day.  All the first grade students were encouraged to dress up, and many of them did. We did several craftivities. We made pirates and parrots.  They turned out very cute and the buccaneers seemed to have  a jolly good time.

We also went on a treasure hunt for /ar/ words around the building.  Our classes did a really good job finding and reading the words.  Many of the activities that we used are from Abby at the Inspired Apple and Deanna Jump, and can be purchased through their TPT stores.  The parrot was something that I found on pinterest.

Overall it was a great day and I am so ready for a three day weekend.
