International Talk Like A Pirate Day

Ahoy Teachers!

Now there is an official day for you to celebrate your secret pirate passion and have a fun educational day with your students.

September 19 is International Talk Like A Pirate Day. ITLAPD was started by Mark Summers and John Baur and is celebrated all over the world. From Mark:

Coming at the beginning of the school year, Talk Like a Pirate Day allows the students to see their teacher's playful side. This should not be viewed as a day wasted on silly nonsense, but as a ‘teachable moment.’ Be creative, take risks and above all, have fun.

Go to their website and find all things pirate along with some curriculum for celebrating ITLAPD in the classroom. Of course, Pirate Math fits in perfectly with this momentous day. We will be posting Pirate Math puzzles on Facebook the month before September 19, 2014.
