Over the last two weeks we have been doing some slow progress working on a lapbook about pirates. Well one of the branches of our county library hosted a pirate day. So, we surprised the children by taking them to it. (Danny took Tim-2yo with him somewhere else.) They got to meet Captain Jack Sparrow. They went on a treasure hunt (they did the same one three or four times). They attended a class on piratey stuff where Cap'n Jack taught them pirate words and the history behind pirating. They learned the parts of a ship, colored pictures and made a pirate out of construction paper. They all decided that it was a good surprise.
I just wish the pictures had come out a little clearer.
