International Talk Like a Pirate Day Map
The guys who started the whole International Talk Like a Pirate Day have their own website. If you plan on participating, contact them. They’ll add you to their international map. Our program was added to the map. This is so exciting!
I can’t wait for Talk Like a Pirate Day this year. I’m working with kids in grades 1 – 5 in an after school program. My co-workers and I are eagerly anticipating the fun we plan to have with the kids.
Our kiddos get computer time everyday, so I think we might just have to have them look up their Pirate names. When I looked up MS Do, this I’m now known as Pirate Augusta the Pale. This is from the Pirate Name Generator. Another place we can use, in case the first site doesn’t make it through the school filtering software is Pirate Name. On that site, my name became “Capn Maria Lindsey the Yellow Heart.”
While they’re on the computers celebrating Talk Like a Pirate Day, they can also look up a few phrases to help them Talk Like a Pirate using the Pirate Translator.
Talk Like a Pirate Translator
The older kids will each be assigned a letter to look up words in the Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue. After finding five new words and their definitions, they can share their new knowledge with their classmates. An easy way to assign letters is to write each letter of the alphabet on a popsicle stick and have them draw a stick out. They can share in alphabetic order or have them go in order of the letters in Talk Like A Pirate.
Maybe I can convince the computer teacher to download the Weather or Not app for us so that we can check the weather like a pirate.
