Gordon came home from school with a skull and cross bones eye patch on under his glasses. When I told him that I liked it, he said, "My teacher gave it to me because one of our spelling words is aaargh!"

According to my spell checker, aaargh really isn't a word. I do think it is fun that these cute first grade students get to learn how to spell like a pirate.

If it hasn't broken, maybe I will update with a photo.

So it officially has 3 a's in it? I'll have to remember that next time I need to spell "Aaargh!"

Yes. Officially 3 a's in it. And don't forget the exclamation point.

Gordon hasn't been this excited about spelling words before. He has such a fun teacher. He may be the only one of my kids that know how to spell it.

Ashlyn's theme for school this year has been pirates. She has a pirate folder she has to bring home every day and she's even been given an eye patch for something. It's nice when a teacher makes learning fun.
