Talk Like a Pirate is a story written by E.J. Roseberry at Teacher Chalk Talk. This story is a great way to incorporate International Talk LIke a Pirate Day, September 19, into your classroom. Use this story interactively with your students and introduce to your class how to "Talk Like a Pirate" as students will echo responses to teacher prompts throughout the story. Use with other pirate day resources and your students will build their oral language and literacy skills as little pirates throughout the month. Encourage creativity and invite students to make their own pirate hats and eye patches to wear on International Talk LIke a Pirate Day, or any day when a pirate theme can be used to encourage students to practice basic literacy skills.
