Good morning!



In pirate talk, that means, “I concur.”

Our last fourth grade CKLA reading unit is Treasure Island.

We are doing all kinds of fun pirate activities in my classroom to end the year on a memorable note. Following a pirate treasure map to find a treasure hidden within our school. Learning our own pirate names. Writing about if I were a pirate.

Besides, who doesn’t love a pirate?

For the record, my pirate name is Mad Patch Jackson.

What’s yours?

I had to laugh. I had eye surgery last week and had to leave the hospital with my eye patched. I believe that should make me a real live pirate. And this little worksheet has made it official.

Today I’m back on my way to OKC to visit the surgeon. I’m no longer wearing an eye patch. This time as Mad Patch Jackson, teacher by day, pirate by starlight.

I can’t wait to watch my students on their search for hidden treasure when we all return on Tuesday. I’ve hidden clues and a treasure (if you consider candy, plastic jewelry, and coloring pencils and markers a treasure) around the school for them to find.

Do you know what other treasures we hide?

We hide God’s word in our heart. Like hidden treasure.

We may not be able to take our earthly treasures with us when we leave this world, but we can keep God’s treasures, his word, in our hearts. No one can take that away.

Here’s to God’s word. The best booty (treasure) there is!

I have hidden your words in my heart that I shall not sin against you. Psalm 119: 11

Love and laughter,
