Besides Gingerbread Man Week, PIRATE WEEK is a kindergarten FAVORITE for sure!!!!!!
If I didn't have a western theme, this would be my next pick!

We spent a week on this unit because there is so many FUN activities!
We had PIRATE DAY and all the kids dressed up as pirates.

We even turned our covered wagon into a pirate ship!

                   For Writer's Workshop, we took some time to respond to these pirate prompts:

                                                        We wrote AR an OR words.

                                                               We sorted ch and sh words:


Other cute ideas:

We played a lot of learning games on Jake and the Neverland Pirates site.

We read Pirate books on our tag readers.

On the last day, Jack Sparrow came and stole our treasure chest!!!!
He left us a treasure map and clues so we could go on a treasure hunt.
Watch this adorable video of my amazing student teacher reading the clues! 

This is a map of our school. We had 4 clues.

We made telescopes with paper towel rolls and foil.

Clue 3: We had to put the days of the week and months of the year in order on the magnetic shed.

Clue 4: We had to read -ar words we learned from that week (-aarrgh words...cute hah!)

 Clue 5: We found the giant red X! The kids had to search the playground for the treasure!
