    I am doing an ocean/pirate theme for my second grade class this year. As I mentioned in another post, my behavior chart will have "pirate themed" sections:

    How Arrrrre You Doing?

    Buried Treasure
    Happy Sailing
    At Sea
    Turbulent Waters
    Shipwrecked :lol:

    I wanted to find mini cut-outs that I can use to put magnets on for the students to be able to move on the chart however, I have been very unlucky finding cut-outs that match this theme. The only thing close that I've found is a bear in a canoe by Trend. Has anyone seen anything that would match this chart? Any ideas other than ships or pirates I can use for their magnets? I will use plain circles as a last resort. Any input will be greatly appreciated! :thanks:

    Can you find clip art pics that work and then print them out on cardstock? You'd have to cut them out, but...

    I tried looking and nothing seemed to be what I was looking for. I wanted something plain that I could just write a number on.

    Those are really neat! I love how you are using numbers on them instead of names. :)

    Just wait until you get the parent who gets angry about implying piracy is appropriate for 2nd graders...

    I was amazed those people were out there when I did a pirate unit with my 7th graders the first time. But, believe me, they are. People wanted to know why I was glorifying crime. Seriously.

    That is really sad. First, I wanted to do a jungle/monkey theme but that turned out to be a possible racial problem...now I'm doing oceans with some pirates integrated into it and I'm encouraging the kids to be criminals! LOL We just can't win! :down:
