Over the summer, my office was painted-thank you school! A light, calming sky-blue color. It was actually titled "open air" from Sherwin Williams. In preparation for the new color, I thought about and planned what I wanted my speech room to look like. I had two requests:
I wanted something functional.
I wanted something welcoming.
I finally came up with this "tree" themed bulletin board. I am constantly rummaging for words with targeted sounds. If I don't have them on hand, I have to quickly think through and come up with a list in my head. Oh, and I printed off the cute speech signs from http://howpintearesting.blogspot.com/ for free on her TPT site! Thanks Laura!
Now, any time I'm in my room, I only have to look up and voila!-there are hundreds of words at my disposal!Ireland, along with encouraging cards I've received along my journey as a SLP. Now, when I have one those days (we all have them), I can escape to a happy place. :)
I enhanced my whiteboard.......
And also organized my materials by color.
Yellow=phonological awareness skills
Whew! I love ideas! Tell me some things you've done to prepare your "little bit of speech heaven" this year!
