Discover the Treasure of Learning

I established this theme for my class this year. My organization tool is the P.I.R.A.T.E. binder (Prepared, Independent, Responsible, And Tidy Everyday) based on the infamous MOOSE book. My reading corner and bulletin board are covered with thatched hut paper, with a totem pole, parrot, palm tree, and grass skirt adorning the area. My treasure chest is filled with good behavior items. I gave each student a "treasure hunt" bag filled with items and riddles the first day. At Meet and Greet everyone received a lei as I welcomed them aboard. For open house I have a pirate hat decorating activity while I visit with parents. And, lots of other little items along the theme like gems instead of marbles, Pirates of the Caribbean fruit snacks, etc.

We are already back in school, and the kids have loved the theme. I am sure yours will, too!
