Two years ago, I found the cutest pirate's chest Michael's. I have always kept it in my classroom teacher closet which can be locked but I have never locked it and have never had anyone go in it without permission. This past year, for a split second I thought of displaying it as a visual reminder but then I caught wind of some extreme sticky fingers (taking money from teacher purses) so I locked it up. I will have built in shelves this year and I'm thinking of displaying it on a taller shelf. This past year for that split second I didn't think of my own students possibly trying to get to it but other students that pass by and see it If you have one of these, do you display it in your room or not? What are your pros and cons?
