Yo Ho Ho… It’s Pirate Time

Over the last few weeks, my mailbox has been running over with sweet comments and unit requests. First, I have to “thank you” for being so kind and generous. My bucket is running over and I can’t express how appreciative I am. The requests for themes is growing at a rapid pace. (I have been writing down your ideas!) I have been trying to update my units from last year, but I have not gotten to them. ( I am trying, but time is definitely getting away from me.)
I am loving the numerous different pirate theme activities and décor ideas I have gotten from pinterest. {Click Here to follow my pinterest pirate board} 
Here are a few of my favorites. (Just click the picture to head over to the original owner.)

Pirate Classroom Decor from School Girl Style
Considering polka dots is one of my “favorite things” I see a pirate theme in my future classroom someday. Last year, I grabbed some adorable pirate themed items from the Target Dollar Spot during the summer. (Confession- Oh My!) I have a fetish with the dollar spot. Okay, maybe a borderline addiction- heck let’s be honest it’s a full-blown addiction. I can not seem to get enough. (It’s only a dollar, right…)
Without further ado, I present my newest theme unit.
