P.D. decided to ask her friends what they wanted to turn our drama centre into. She used a graph to organize her information, the students were allowed to make one, two, or three choices. The clear winner was the 'treasure hunt'.
As a class, we brainstormed what we would need if we were to change the drama centre into a 'treasure hunt'.
The students quickly got to work planning and writing about what we would need. They drew pirates, ships and maps! We have read many read alouds about pirates to get ideas and learn more information.

We created the beach and treasure hunt in the sand table.
The students then created a treasure box.
We have begun to build the ship!
We are excited to watch the students get into character as pirates and for the amazing authentic, oral language opportunities to come. Stay tuned for the final product!
