P is for Pirate

I absolutely loved the book, Teach Like A Pirate by Dave Burgess!!! It is a book that I refer to often and one that all educators should read and consider!!! Well, after this book, I didn't think that one could touch me again in that way but I was wrong! P is for Pirate is AMAZING! It is also written by Dave Burgess and it hooks you from beginning to end.

The simple pages highlight the words that are of importance of each letter of the alphabet. As you read through the alphabet, you are given thoughts and ideas that are so vital for your classroom to be the kind that the kids want to go to not want to get away from.

I love these quotes!!!!!

I could go on and on about this book but then it would ruin it for you! I recommend this book to all educators. It renews the reasons why we became educators! It shows us that creativity is not lost! It shows us that the effective teachers are those who love their students, provide them with meaningful experiences, think outside the box and do not believe in producing cookie cutter students!


  1. Would love to add this book to my classroom :0)

  2. I have heard a lot about this book, so I would like to read it! I am also a first grade teacher!

  3. Hey friend! I can't believe I wasn't already following you. What was I thinking?!

  4. Haven't seen this book...would love to add it to my collection of alphabet books. Thank you for the chance.
