All aboard for first grade!

My classroom theme this year is going to be pirates! But not scary pirates. Cute pirates-- because these are first graders after all.

Although teachers don't report back to school until August 16th where I'm from, I've already been in my classroom to set up my bulletin boards. Here's a peek:
I've also been having a blast looking up pirate stuff on Etsy!

Check out these awesome favor boxes from Vintage Twee. Wouldn't they be great to hold small knick-knacks and rewards for my students?
Or how about these pirate clipart pictures from Woofy World? I can think of all kinds of uses for those... maybe to designate classroom jobs?
I think it would be awesome if I wore this pirate ship shirt from Happy Family on the first day of school. Not really teacher dress code, but pirates are supposed to be rebellious... right?
I love it when my day job inspires me to be creative!

  3. That's awesome! What a fun theme! You're going to be the coolest teacher on the block. I'm hoping in a couple weeks I'll have a classroom of my own to decorate. :)

  7. Your students are so lucky! I don't remember any teacher doing that when I was a kid. And that T-shirt would be just perfect for the first day of school :)

  8. Love it! That's super fun. And you could totally rock that t-shirt peeking out from a cardigan and paired with a fun skirt!
