Pirates / Nautical Themed Classrooms


I'm super excited about my brand new line of classroom theme and color scheme bundles! My goal was to create a product that provided teachers with everything they would need to put together a beautifully themed and organized classroom at a very low cost. To create the Pirate Theme Classroom look below I simply combined the printables in my packet with some fabric, ribbon, card stock and borders...so cheap and easy! Each low-cost bundle contains 34 classroom essential products (see the full list of items at the bottom of this post). The bundles also include editable files so you may customize them with student names, classroom activities, book titles and more.

multipurpose labels, nameplates / deskplates, basket labels, team / table numbers, number tags, welcome signs, welcome banner, calendar headings, calendar / date cards, seasons and weather chart, hundred chart, decorative pennant banner, bookmarks, days of the week bin labels, hall passes, classroom job chart, decorative accents for bulletin boards, behavior clip chart, word wall headers, word wall letters, word wall cards, classroom schedule cards, How We Get Home door chart, classroom supply labels, classroom clock telling time helpers, school day tracker, color poster, tooth tally, number posters with ten frames, half-page alphabet cards, alphabet posters with picture cues, binder covers, classroom newsletter template....many of these products are editable with PowerPoint (07 or higher)

The next few photos are from her nautical themed classroom.





The next 10 images are from Ms. Callow's classroom.

  2. This makes me want to have a pirate theme! The pictures are great. Maybe next year. I already invested too much time and $ on my safari/jungle theme.

  3. Thanks for posting these. I always finish the year with a Pirate theme. I posted about it not so long ago. I have a bulletin board, and some activities my students and I even did, including a free pirate glyph. My students required a bit of help but it would be a fantastic first day activity for older kids. You can find it here:

  7. I have a question about the picture that has pictures of the kids dressed as sailors. There is a paper beside of each picture. I figure it is some kind of writing the kids had to do, but what kind is it?
