We all know that September 19th is Talk Like a Pirate day, but do Koreans?
I took it upon myself to bring pirate day to my kindergarten class. I think they liked it. We made hats, parrots, eye patches and even treasure maps. They were even talking like pirates!
When I said, "Are ye ready to start class?"
They replied, "Arrrrrrr, teacher!"
Here are some pics of my kids. The best part of these pics, is looking at how they decorated their pirate hats. Let's look at these pirate fashions from a kindergartener!
Dorothy has a great example of our parrots made of tissue paper and googley eyes. Many were put on the shoulders at first, but most of the kids wanted their parrots on their heads for some reason. I believe this is the Korean - Pirate fusion called Scally-Shui.
Been is also sporting some hearts on her hat, but as you can see, she has titled her hat 'Been Pirate'. I tried to tell her to add the 'the' in 'Been the Pirate', but as you can tell by her face, she said, "Blow it out yr bunghole, Captain Teacher" This is a great example of the poor grammar that all pirates still have today.
Tommy has a few bombs and other items of mass destruction on his hat. And as is evident, he doesn't care a bit about that parrot of his. He just keeps it under his hat and lets him out when he feels like it. Arrrr, what a cruel master, he be!
Stella may be the fiercest pirate yet. Many people think there weren't any women pirates, but Stella is here to remind us that there are, and they are a force to be reckoned with. Stella also reminds you that there is a softer side to pirates. Pirates don't only love rum and booty, but they love flowers as well. And DON'T YE BE MESSIN WITH ME FLOWERS!
Please note: Her parrot is so scared of her, it sits off her shoulder and hides its eyes. This is to avoid Stella's death stare.
Anyways, this was the scariest photo I could get out of him. He didn't want everyone to think he was one of those other pirates.
Happy Talk Like A Pirate Day!
