Throughout the month of June, I am going to run a Classroom Theme Series and feature a different popular classroom theme each day. Themes are a great way to tie everything in your classroom together...you just have to be careful not to let them clutter your classroom :) Today we arghhhhhhhhh saying, "Ahoy, Matey!"

As always, I love Beth Newingham's Go Big or Go Home approach to taking on a classroom theme.
The next few photos are from her nautical themed classroom.
The next 10 images are from Ms. Callow's classroom.
The following 10 pics are from classrooms in the UK.
I found a site with some great pirate-themed resources to use with your class. View it here.
