Pirates - r-controlled vowel /ar/

After purchasing the marvelous unit from The Inspired Apple, we used Kim Saylor's idea at Saylor's Log and let the students create their own treasure maps using words from the Pirate Mark listening activity.   These /ar/ pirate activities sparked us to schedule a Pirate Day.  So more to follow . . . .

Message in a Bottle

Arghh Parents!

Our 1st Grade Pirate Day was a ton of fun.  One of the activities students were a part of was creating messages in a bottle.  Students wrote out their message on worn tea stained paper, and added it to their bottles.
