We have been reading Adventure According to Humphrey by Betty Birney. We love all these books because we love little furry creatures. We have a classroom pet guinea pig named Pee Wee. Sometimes he talks to us just like Humphrey does in these books.
In this book Humphrey is longing for some adventure. The kids are building ships and reading a story about Pirates, called Jolly Roger's Guide to Life by I.C. Waters. We are following @piratejokes on twitter too. This has been a fun way to learn the "ar" chunk for spelling.
We also love this Pirate video.... ARRRRR
