Pirates {and First Graders} say "ARRR!"

Along with learning about the /ow/ and /ou/ sound, we've also been learning about the /ar/ sound. 
To help reinforce this particular r-controlled vowel, I gave all my students an "ar" eye patch. I got them cheap from Amazon {here}. To put the "ar" on them I cut out vinyl with my silhouette. This was an easy project and it didn't take long at all to put everything together. My students were SO excited to wear these cute eye patches home!! {And they looked pretty darn cute, too!}

I used all the /ar/ activities from Abby's adorable Pirate Mark packet on TpT! You can check it out {here}. My students especially loved her story about Pirate Mark and the treasure map activity!

We are also learning this cute little pirate song from the Backyardigans!
My students look so darn adorable when they sing this song and they are pretty good at it, too.
Youtube won't let me embed the song to this post, but you can check it out here.

I also read both of these stories to my students and now they are a class favorite!

The Pirate Who Couldn't Say Arrr!

My sweet friend, Michelle @ Fabulous in First, just made an adorable Pirate unit that would go perfectly with all of these activities! Check it out {here}!

Happy Monday!! xoxo
