Classroom Decorating Series - Pirate 1

Last year was my first year using a pirate theme. I could never really decide on a color scheme to go with it, so you'll see that it's still mostly multi-colored. This year, the theme is going to be much, much cuter! That's a guarantee. :)

This is a view of the clip chart I used for management. I can not say enough how much I loved it!

This is a view of the teacher area. Like I said, it tends to shrink each year!

This is a view towards the door. You can see the palm tree for décor. Décor was not my focus last year. I do love the way I used a bench for the writing table though. (You can see that against the white board. The kids loved writing here!)

The front of the room. The bench was still serving a use under the Smart Board. You can also see Mischief the monkey, our classroom helper. I think the bench may find a new home in my new room. I'm not sure it'll fit beneath the Smart Board anyways.

My lovely writing process map can be seen above the computers. You can also see a smaller reading nook in the back of the room. This map was probably what inspired the pirate theme to begin with.
And what have I been working on for this year's improved pirate/nautical theme?

That's all for now. I'm off to work on some more crafts for the classroom!
