This week we are learning the "ar" sound. What better of a way to learn the "ar" sound other than from being a pirate? We started out on Tuesday with a book about Pirate Mark and then we later found a letter from him. Would you believe he asked US for help to find his treasure? We followed the treasure map, which led us to a bunch of "ar" words!
We also made our very own pirates with ar words...because we must be pirates after all of that treasure hunting! Click on the photo to enlarge it. Credit to blogger Deanna Jump for many of these ideas.
We ended the day with reading How I Became a Pirate by Melinda Long and David Shannon. A great story about a boy that gets to be a pirate for a day...just like us!
