Galleons, and Damsels, and Pirates Oh My!
It is common knowledge that most kids are fascinated with pirates and pirate-paraphernalia. Is it their humorous way of communicating, or their intimidating looks? Is it their swashbuckling ways, or their seafaring knowledge? Or what about the magnificent treasures they find? I think it's all of it!
Here are some ideas to help your kiddos learn!
This book from DK is a wonderful addition to your library, and at under $15 I think very worth it! It contains a balance of visuals and information that will keep your youngest or older student entertained.
This book is really cute, and is a great read aloud for kids. It actually is very popular, and part of our homeschool library. PLUS, it's currently free on Audible!
Our next book recommendation is Pirateology! This 'ology' book series is certainly one that inspires the lifetime learner!
We love fun family learning in our home. We believe play should be an integral part of the homeschool dynamic when possible. Here are some picks we want to share with you and a little bit as to why we chose them.
This one is a little pricey, but the desired goal is great! Encourages language and social skills. Great game to also play on National Talk Like a Pirate Day! (note: we will be planning a group field trip on that day....join us!)
This one says the geared ages are 8-15, however, I think even highschool students and adults can enjoy it. Catan products are popular among aspiring historians or history buffs.
If your younger students like Monopoly, then Pirate-opoly is your board game.
And last but not least....to all my Disney fans....Pirates of the Caribbean Battleship is your game! Shiver-me-timbers!
