September 19th is a day of the year
that always brings a little joy into my heart.
You may (or may not) know, but it's a holiday!
It's called International Talk Like a Pirate Day!
It's a day for telling pirate jokes, wearing black and white,
and an excuse to say "Arrrrrrrgh" whenever you feel like it.
I celebrated in the following ways:
1) Wore a black and white striped shirt to school,
complete with a pirate hat and patch. :)
(I wish I would have remembered to take a photo!)
2) Shared pirate jokes with my students
3) Read How I Became a Pirate to my students
It was a pretty fun day!
And, in the spirit of this holiday, I leave you with some pirate jokes:
Why couldn't the pirate go to the movie?
It was rated AAARRRRRRRRRRR!
What's a pirate's favorite letter?
How much does it cost a pirate to get a piercing?
A buck an ear!
What do you call a pirate that skips school?
