Talk Like a Pirate Day

Ahoy there Maties! Friday, September 19, is Talk Like a Pirate Day.

There are a lot of pirate ideas on the internet. Check out this site: for some including a pirate talk translator. It also includes some ideas for the classroom.

You can give yourself a pirate name with this fun generator: Pirate Name. Here's mine.

To celebrate I plan to have my kiddos do some pirate themed math activities. Here are a few things I found. There are many more activities out there!

I also created some activities that we will be doing in math. 

*Pirate Riddle Page on Order of Operations
*Pirate Riddle Page on Adding & Subtracting Decimals
*Pirate themed Task Cards on Place Value with Whole Numbers & Decimals

Coloring with Order of Operations 2 includes 10 math problems and a pirate picture to color according to the answers.


Math Activities Packet 2 includes several activities but only one is pirate themed - One-Step Equation Match Up, a matching game where students solve one-step equations and find the puzzle piece that fits.

Will you be celebrating Talk Like a Pirate Day in your classroom?

  1. So many great ideas! I love the name generator. How fun! I can see using that as a motivator for the class even. They can generate a new name for good behavior after one of the pirate math activities. Thanks for sharing and for linking up for my Math Madness Wednesday, pirate edition!
