Pirate Theme & Reading Hut!

I am gearing up for this school year and I started by making the most adorable Pirate themed classroom decor posters!


These are my alphabet posters - vowels are in red and consonants in black!
I love the way the pirates match the color signs!

These parrots are too cute - I had to use them for numbers AND shapes!
This is my behavior clip chart for this year:
 I can't wait for my little pirates to earn their gold clips!

Then, while I was at Frog Street Press' SPLASH conference this weekend, my husband created the most wonderful Reading Hut for my classroom!

He made the frame collapsible so it will be easy to get to school and set up in my classroom! He covered the exposed bolts with corks to protect little heads too! You can tell he's a dad because he made sure that my little pirates will be 100% visible while still giving them a cozy space!

On the inside are these lights that I can plug in, and the tiki torch has a battery operated led candle in it!

Isn't it amazing?! I had no idea he was working on it while I was gone! I love it when he surprises me!

Now its time to actually start moving things into my classroom!
It's a blank slate now, but I can't wait to show it to you when it's finished!

By the way, today is the last day of the TpT Back to School Sale! My entire store is 20% off, plus if you use the code BTS15 you get an additional 10% off at checkout!

Our theme is also "Pirates". "Teach like a Pirate" by Dave Burgess is a book we are using.I love your reading center. My husband used to do the same thing for me...he's doing that in Heaven and making a lot of people happy!!
Let's have a great year!
