For those who don’t speak Pirate yet, here’s a translation:
Yarrrrrr….! Tomorrow is International Talk Like A Pirate Day! I found a great site that is geared towards teachers and students that shares many ideas for activities and lessons to make the day interesting. The whole site is not for teachers, so be sure to check things out before sharing the main url with students. The Pirate Fun and Games section has the most kid-friendlly information.

EXTRA: If you’re having trouble making a connection between International Talk Like a Pirate Day (today) and school, Joel Heffner sent me this link to a wonderful TED Talk. Dave Eggers talks about his 826 Valencia tutoring center and some of the magic that is happening in his neighbourhood – all behind a Pirate Supply Store!
