Burley, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) First grade teacher Melanie Terry isn't getting an early start on Halloween.
During the first week of school, she read the storybook, "Pirates go to School" and decided to dress up to match.
At the beginning of the school year, Dworkshak Elementary does rotations between all of the first grade classrooms and Terry's happened to be pirate themed, which she hoped her students would like.
"Just to get them excited about school and wanting to read and really get into the stuff they read," explains Terry.
After story time, the children made pirate hats, followed by writing in their journals about seeing the different classrooms and what they learned.
