Speech Room Tour 2015-2016

July 2016 || Summer is in full swing and I finally have the chance to post pics of my updated Superhero Speech Room from the recently past school year 2015-2016. I am very content with this setup as I put a lot of thought about how I really wanted to work in this space the beginning of the year that I probably won't change for the next school year. Check out my previous Superhero Speech Room here and see if you can spot the changes. The pictures were taken in the Fall so everything  was a bit "fresher," lol. I might refresh the door decor...we'll see :)

my Superhero themed door
Speech fabric banner by Dean Trout on Etsy.
I messaged her what my theme was
and she came up with the color scheme.
Superhero Name and Room # came from the digital file
I purchased from Speech Room Style via TpT.
I updated the lanterns by putting the masks on,
originally inspired by School Girl Style.
My dear friend Daniela sewed the chair covers.
The gray polka dot fabric I bought from
Walmart couple years ago.
The previous wardrobe cover didn't really go
with the room so I got a new blue and white
striped gift wrapping paper from Home Goods
and carefully "wrapped" my wardrobe making
sure the lines are somewhat aligned.
Thematic/seasonal lessons are in the blue
covered bins next to my extra penny folders
I've collected from all my Office Depot/Max trips.

Yes, I have "SLP" light up letters from
Heidi Swapp™ Marquee Love® Letter Kit
I hated all those unsightly binders that filled
this bookcase the past couple years so I purged
 and narrowed it down to 3 coordinating binders below.
The rest of the books and materials are in black milk crates I bought from Walmart.
my go to references
The table used to be up against that bulletin board.
The new set up allows me to sit more kids.
I wanted to make a functional, interactive board.
I saw Nicole Allison's Communication Tree Bulletin Board
and thought I can make these target words as the windows
on my city scape. Ideally, I wanted them on velcro so we
could use them during therapy. But my velcro is heavy duty
that the background paper would eventually get ripped
from constant pulling.

When I purged my unsightly binders from
the bookcase above, I decided to transfer the most
important contents on a more efficient filing
system instead using one of my desk drawers.
I used Thirty-One Double Duty Caddy
to hold essential supplies within an arm's reach
during therapy. This fabric print is probably retired.
I didn't like the cluttered things on my wall previously,
so just like the bookcase, I purged and decided to just
have these three folders up: Articulation and Phonology
screeners with my HAPP protocols
Enjoy the rest of the summer!
