Tropical fish pictures Ocean


I've gathered some ideas and links for you to get your classroom all "beachy."

This theme was one of my favorites. I even used it for (insert gasp) two years. There is so much you can do with it and many directions to take it in: pirates, fish, ocean, Hawaiian, tropical, etc.

Create a large sand castle reading nook using a cardboard box and covering it with sandpaper.

Cover the windows in blue plastic wrap.

Hang fish and seaweed from the ceiling.

Use sand pails to hold supplies like pencils.

Bring in beach chairs.

Let the kids sit o beach towels when they are reading.

Use cardboard to make a surfboard.

Attention Getter: Teacher Says, “Surfs Up” and students say, “Hang Ten”

Use a Beach Cabana to create a cozy reading area.

Hang a grass skirt around a table and use the space underneath for storage.

Use a beach themed shower curtain to cover open shelving.

Make pillow cases and curtains from tropical themed fabric (Walmart sells it cheap)

Take a picture of each child wearing a pirate hat and eye patch or a flowered shirt and straw hat. Use them to mark cubbies/lockers.

Have a “Starfish of the Week” instead of a “Star of the Week.”

Spraypaint your metal trashcan blue. Use fish stamps to create a cool look.

Reading celebrity gossip is my guilty pleasure... lol.
Are you guys (who post pictures) the photographers, or do you find them on other sites to post here?
Saw Sinbad today, at a tropical fish store in Chatsworth. He'll be back there on Saturday to drop off his 9ft boa that they are going to sell for him. Couldn't figure out why he looked so familiar, so I said "You look so familiar..." and he replied that it's because he's always in the store. Then someone called his name from the back of the store and he laughed and said "Or maybe you've seen me somewhere else" Ha! I felt like an idiot, but at least I wasn't gushing at him or something equally annoying; we just talked snakes & reptiles while they finished my sale & his paperwork about the snake
