Are you planning a pirate themed classroom or thematic unit? This blog post provides great decoration tips and ideas for the best pirate theme yet! It has photos, ideas, supplies & printable classroom decor to will make set up easy and affordable. You can create a pirate theme on a budget!
  1. Crumple brown paper grocery bags and staple them to your bulletin boards as background paper that resembles treasure maps (free and looks great)!
  2. Purchase costume plastic gems and hot glue them to solid color borders to trim your bulletin boards.
  3. You could also hot glue gold coins to charts, posters and bulletin board trims.
  4. Create a welcom board that reads, "Ahoy Mateys! Welcome Aboard __ Grade!"
  5. Make a board to display student work titled, "Work We Treasure." 
  6. Title your student job board as "All Hands on Deck."
  7. Take photos of your students wearing pirate hats and eye patches. Use those pictures to label cubbies/lockers or as a great display that can be left up all year.
  8. Name your guided reading teams or reading groups after famous pirates (i.e. Bluebeards, Sparrows, Hooks, Blackbeards).
  9. Use sandpaper (sold in big sheets) as a background for bulletin boards or to cut out letters to make titles for your boards.
  10. A low-cost way to enhance your Pirates theme is to set up a display of books that relate to the theme by standing them on a counter or shelf.
