I sat down in front of my very chatty class to read the story Pirate Mark from The Babbling Abby. I just blurted out a big aaargh. I got their attention! Then they saw me with my pirate patch!! Now that got their attention. Do you know it's hard to read with only one eye!
After the reading they each got their own eye patch to go on a treasure hunt for ar words.
After they filled up the map with ar words they came back to the group and we wrote them on the interactive white board.
Then they went around the room collecting the words and adding them to the treasure map. Their treasure was extra recess.
