If ye'd care to join the carousin', read on.

(Quick disclaimer~ I am not in love with the concept of pirates, but it is a part of history, and the old Sea Salt vernacular could apply to many ship's captains, and adventurers, pirate or not. In light of that, and in honor of Talk Like a Pirate Day...)

Disney has some Jake and the Neverland Pirates coloring pages, crafts and activity books (including a backyard leaf treasure hunt... cute!)

Talk like a Pirate Tips from Mango Languages*:

Make sure to add extra Rs onto lots of words when speaking like a pirate. This will happen a lot at the end of words ending in a vowel, like when to turns to ter. Just remember, a pirate's favorite letter is ARRR!

Keep in mind that a pirate usually doesn't change the form of, or conjugate, the verb to be. If you want to sound like a true buccaneer, avoid using am, is or are! (The ship be founderin'!)

Pirate Cultural Note: The phrase Shiver me timbers! is thought to come from the feeling of shock from a ship running aground or being blasted by a cannon.

Pirate joke: Why does it take pirates so long to learn the alphabet? Because they can spend years at C!

Side note: The Schoolhouse TOS Review Crew reviewed the homeschool edition of Mango Languages this spring. I was not on that review, but you can check it out here. TOS Mango Reviews
