    Pirate Theme Ideas

    One thing you could do after the kids come back to school is to come up with a Jolly Roger flag that you all specifically design for your classroom and that could be your flag for the year. They could also each do their own Jolly Roger flag. There is a cute picture book, Roger, the Jolly Pirate by Brett Helquist (I just looked it up on mazon!) that tells a fictional story of how the Jolly Roger came to be. We read that and then made our own flags.

    I also had an overhead transparency given to me by my partner teacher that had 3 columns with pirate type names on it and the students picked a name from each column and came up with a pirate name which they attached to their flag. For example, mine was Calico Bonnie Blue. If you want that list of names, maybe I can type it in and send it to you.

    One more thing, check the party stores for pirate themed things. We dressed up on the next to the last day of school and I found a package of 3 eye patches with plastic earrings for $1.50 at Target. Target also has two cute pinatas, a pirate and a parrot, which you could hang or sit somewhere in your room. I never checked the other party stores, but I'm sure they would have had more stuff, too---we just ran out of days to do much of anything there at the end!
