Talk Like A Pirate Day - In School & Therapy
Bring "International Talk Like A Pirate Day" to the classroom!Late September's always kind of a lull as far as themes and holidays go. Back-to-school's over, and Halloween's still over a month away: what's a teacher or SLP to do?
How about "International Talk Like a Pirate Day" (September 19)! Sound silly? Well, sure! That's the fun! But it's a very real holiday, celebrated for over a decade around the world and is a great opportunity to motivate kids of all ages to talk and play with a subject they love: Pirates!
LessonPix.com makes it easy with dozens of Pirate Pictures and a new Treasure Map material!

Working on literacy? Have your students use our Drawing and Writing Pages to tell the story of their Pirate Journey!
Here's a Free Sample, but you can make your own with any of our Pirate Pictures.
Our newest material (look for it under Learning Games in the Material Wizard) lets you choose any 2,3,or 4 symbols (even your own photos) and generate a realistic map to make your hunt even more fun!
After Talk Like a Pirate Day's over, change the title and symbols and you have a great Visual Schedule for those kids who really like the Pirate theme!
More Pirate Ideas!Got a great idea for getting kids into a pirate mood? Made something great with our symbols and materials? Or even without them?
