All Things Pirate! Aargh!!!

I have a pirate themed classroom and it is so much fun!

Here are a few of the fun things we use to add to our pirate theme:

TREASURE CHEST: We put our prizes in our treasure chest! One of the treasure chests is filled with Pirate's Booty! Have you ever tried this before? So yummy and it's gluten free! A must for me!

Pirate's Booty, Aged White Cheddar, 4-Ounce Bags (Pack of 12)
Yummy Pirate's Booty! This is a perfect prize for our classroom!!

WHOLE BRAIN RULES: We love using Chris Biffle's Whole Brain Teaching Rules in our classroom. I made these to fit our pirate theme. We have them up in a few places around our classroom...including individual ones that we use as reminders.

CLIP CHART: Our clip chart was inspired by Welcome to Room 36 . We discovered her clip chart this past summer, but it wasn't available in her store yet. We loved it soooooo much, that we had to make our own! BUT, her ADORABLE behavior chart is now available! Check it out!!

Our Whole Brain Rules are right next to our Clip Chart-a great way to reflect on the rule that was broken.
P.I.R.A.T.E. BINDER: We use Deanna Jump's P.I.R.A.T.E. binder cover for our binders. Check them out!
This is the first year I have used a binder to communicate with the parents. LOVE it! The daily communication is a must have!

BIRTHDAY BOARD: We keep each student's name and birthday on a popsicle stick and put it in the birthday baggie we got from Hobby Lobby. When the students' birthday month arrives, we put the popsicle sticks in our calendar pockets.

TABLE NAMES: I like to start of the beginning of the school year using our Pirate Theme for our Table Names. As the year continues, we change the Table Names based on our Science and Social Studies Themes.

Pirate Ships


Treasure Chest

Treasure Maps
I have added this to my TpT store as a freebie!
CRATES and CANS: I posted about my DIY crates and cans here. I love little touches like this to help add to the cuteness of the theme!

DIY Mod Podge Cans
GAMES: We love playing games in our classroom! So, of course, I had to create a pirate themed game! If your students love pirates, you have a pirate themed classroom, or if you just want a fun way to reinforce the following skills, then this is the game for you!

                    *Letters and Sounds      *Number Recognition
                    *Sight Words                *CVC Words, including nonsense words
                    *CVCe Words                *Addition/Subtraction Skills

You can find Aargh! Pirate Center Games in my TpT store!
PIRATE PERFORMANCE: To end our year, we are going to have a "Pirate Performance" for the parents! Have you heard the "Silly Pirate Song" by Jack Hartmann? Oh.My.Goodness. It is adorable and our students LOVE it! We can't wait to sing it for our families and, of course, dress up as pirates! Aargh!

PINTEREST BOARD: I love Pinterest!! I have a Pinterest Board called All Things Pirate! Aargh!!! Check it out for more pirate ideas!

PIRATE PICTURES: During the first few days of school, we took pictures of each student wearing a pirate hat! We have used the picture throughout the year for different activities. Here is a picture of my partner teacher (she teaches the afternoon class)...and me. :)

My partner teacher! I sure will miss teaching with her next year! :(
Our "Pirate Performance" is in a couple of weeks! I will share some pics from our party (after the performance) with you..we will be joining in the fun and dressing up as pirates, too! Can't wait to see our little ones dressed as pirates! So CUTE!!

Do you have classroom theme? What fun ideas do you use to help incorporate the theme into learning, design, performances? I would love to hear your ideas!


  1. What an amazing classroom you have! I love it! The clip chart is a great idea too. The performance sounds like fun... I bet your class have a ball!


    Early Years Fun

  2. Awwww...thank you so much! It's so much fun to have a pirate theme! :)This is the first year I have used a clip chart, and I absolutely LOVE it! They start in the middle each day and it is up to them to stay there or work their way up!
