As I said yesterday, my son is loving studying about pirates! He has been asking to do school...gotta love that!
Here's my list of resources:
First my favorite--Jolanthe at Homeschool Creations has a very cute--I mean--hearty lapbook for free. I used her book list and found several of the books at the library. Unfortunately I didn't find "On a Pirate Ship", however the other books are serving us well.
Print Activities.com has a nice list of piratey coloring pages.
We are going to listen to some Patch the Pirate.
Homeschoolshare.com has a pirate lapbook with other resources listed.
I'm thinking of having a Pirate Party--just for fun! We'll have cheese and crackers and chicken (legs, of course!) And I'm going to make a treasure map for him to follow to find the "buried treasure". We'll end the evening by watching Veggie Tales, "The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything."
I'll be sure to post pictures (as long as our camera doesn't go on the fritz again.)
See you later, matey!
