The Day I Went to Sea

During the month of September there are fun days that are celebrated
internationally.  One of them is Talk Like a Pirate Day on September 19th. 
It’s one of my favourites.
Capture
All the StrongStart centres in the district will be taking part
and we have the perfect setting living by the ocean.
shipwreck
Old shipwrecks maybe from pirates?

We have started getting ready for the day by learning a new song, 
"The Day I Went to Sea".

Here are the words for the song...

When I was one I stuck out me thumb
the day I went to sea
I jumped aboard a pirate ship
and the captain said to me.

"Aargh, we go this way and that way
forward and backward
and all around the sea."

When I was two I tapped my shoe
the day I went to sea
I jumped aboard a pirate ship
and the captain said to me.

"Aargh, we go this way and that way
forward and backward
and all around the sea."

When I was three I slapped my knee
 the day I went to sea
I jumped aboard a pirate ship
and the captain said to me.

"Aargh, we go this way and that way
forward and backward
and all around the sea."

When I was four I shut the door
the day I went to sea
I jumped aboard a pirate ship
and the captain said to me.

"Aargh, we go this way and that way
forward and backward
and all around the sea."

When I was five I took a dive (in the water)
the day I went to sea
I jumped aboard a pirate ship
and the captain said to me.

"Aargh, we go this way and that way
forward and backward
and all around the sea."
