Thinking of changing my moose book to a pirate book. Any ideas on my room theme?
Crew: students
anchor activities: seatwork for when they are done.
treasure box: dollar toys/prizes
Need other ideas:
behavior....maybe using the "plank" idea ?
jobs
etc. etc.
I love mrs. jensens website with her pirate theme website!
thanks .....

Clip to ScrapBook #3

I am doing a pirate and treasure theme. These are the ideas I have gathered from others on this website along with ideas from a pirate coloring book that I have adapted for my third grade class. Moreover, I had luck in Party City finding pirate theme items. Also, I made a lot of my titles on MS Word with word art and clip arts from online and used a laser printer. Finally, I cut the titles and pictures out, pasted a background and laminated. They look store bought and I spent no money. Hope this helps you run with ideas for your particular setting. I will post pictures as soon as possible.

but thought it might be politically incorrect considering the news lately. What do you think? I am considering a mystery/detective theme instead...

I am also going with a pirate theme. I think it's a great way to be able to tie in current events and learn about pirates as well!
