you'll also need to create the following files for a start.

1. header.php
this is where you put your html head and menu. You'll include it with 'get_header' function

2. footer.php
this is similar to header.php. you'll put all the footer part here. use 'get_footer'

3. functions.php
this file is will contain all the logic & settings of the theme. It's like a plugin for the theme

4. page.php
This one will be used for displaying pages

5. archive.php
This will be used for displaying collection of posts

6. single.php
This will be used for single post
