From a Scary Smelly Skeleton Pirate: Happy Halloween 2010!

October 25, 2010

I am a scary smelly skeleton pirate!
I wonder where the treasure is

I hear black rusty shooting fire cannonballs
and swords slapping

I see other English ships to get their treasure
I want treasure, a golden compass, and a gold ring

I am a scary smelly skeleton pirate!
I pretend to play swords with you

I  feel my bones cracking
I touch the shark’s teeth

I worry about my pirate ship
and how it will disappear one day

I cry when my boat tips upside down
I am a scary smelly skeleton pirate!

I understand that I know that you can be killed
I say aye aye matey, I believe in ghosts

I never dream about black treasure
I try not to kill my pet octopus

I hope to be free
I am a scary smelly skeleton pirate

Written by my son Reed when he was in kindergarten…along with some of his classmates! Here we are when he was in preschool–he’s a skeleton and I’m Ms Frizzle from the Magic School.

He and I made the following video in 2008 as well…he was 4, almost 5:

    I am enchanted! I can’t believe he wrote this so young- “I feel my bones cracking” and “I understand that I know that you can be killed”. Wow.

    Thank you! It was a group effort with a small group of kinder and 1st graders. I guided them and encouraged them but these were their images and ideas. I love the playful alliteration!
