2nd Grade Pirate Writing Celebration
It's conference week... I was here till 8:30 last night in my last conference... I'm tired :)
Here are some long lost pictures of our Pirate Writing Celebration.
Since we are an ESOL classroom willed with ELL's, I make sure we make our sharing a to-do. I'm a big believer in writing having a purpose and that my locos should practice formally sharing English just like we practice informally.
The students are always super excited to share their writing and want to invite everyone possible. But then when it comes time to actually share, they get so nervous.
I have forgot to take one of the loco's pictures... oops!
We drank some shark's blood while we wrote our glows to our classmates.
A few pirate snacks to hold us over. Swords, Pirate Teeth, Fish Bait, Cannon Balls, Shark Baits, and Golden Nuggets.
