Creative School Year Themes: Nautical Theme

By Beth Newingham on August 29, 2012
  • Grades: 3–5

For this classroom theme, our classroom was known as “Pier 13." (Our room number is 13.) On the first day of school, I took a picture of each student dressed in navy blue blazer, a captain's, hat, and a captain's wheel in front of a red fabric. I then used Print Shop to crop the students' faces and put them in front of a photo of a cruise ship. The posters were then displayed in our hallway.

In keeping with the nautical theme, each week a new student was honored as "Sailor of the Week."

View more pictures and information about the nautical theme.

Beth,
I love your website and I'm trying to get on so I can access the Postcard Geography website. jennifer.root@sc-aggies.us

Hi Beth!
I've used your site for years and it's amazing. I'm guessing your updating it for a new school year and hoping it's not down for good, but I haven't been able to access it today. Thanks for sharing your wonderful materials. You have improved my practice by your example, and I know you have improved the practice of countless other teachers.
Thanks!
Meg

This is cute. It looks like a fun theme.
