So how do pirates talk? Today is a day to have fun with the kids and the other teachers. Let parents know ahead of time and dress up like a pirate.
Practice your pirate vocabulary ahead of time so you can teach your class, Pirate Speak. Here are some words with their translations:
- Ahoy – Hello
- Aye – Yes I agree
- Arrr (not Argh) – can mean anything! Yes, I agree, I’m happy, this is fun…
- briny deep – the ocean
- Cap’n – Captain
- Scurvy – what you call someone you don’t like
- Ye or Yer – pretty much means you
- Note – drop the g in words with ing – “you havin’ fun with this are ye?” “Aye!”
Here are a few books to use on this Yo Ho Ho of a day!
