I loved getting inspiration from her speech room and the other speech rooms posted in response to her post on the anatomy of her speech room! This is the first year that I've had a room to call my own. I spent my first year at one school, sharing a room with the school storage, after-school program coordinator... At my other schools, I spent a LOT of times in hallways, cafeterias, and in nooks under stairs.
When I started this year in a new district, I was so excited to see that I had such a nice space. I should make a disclaimer that my caseload when I started this year was about 90% artic (really!?). Those things have changed a lot since I started and I am working to make my room more accommodating to my kiddos.
This year, I haven't re-arranged it at all, which will definitely change for next year. I also haven't kept graphic organizers, etc. up all year. These are things I will change for next year, but I think that my room is a step up from the way it was in years past, which was bare, bare, bare.
This is where I do pull-out speech. Behind me, I have pre-made word lists for artic drilling. I am hoping to make a cuter artic cafe for next year, but I made that up one afternoon and it just stuck. To the right of the artic cafe is a small visual for speech rules and a bathroom pass. Above that is one of my new homework strategies: labels with short assignments that are entered into a "speech homework log."
The hanging pockets hold worksheets that target different artic sounds and some basic language goals. Below the pockets is a file holder, which holds my language lessons for the week (usually).
And that, my friends, is Miss K's speech room!
