Speech Therapy: The After of the Speech Room

Finally, I am ready to post the "after" pictures of the speech room! Click here to go to the middle. Here's the view upon entering. And please excuse the blurry pictures...

Last year, the desk was to the immediate left upon entering, and the file cabinets and big metal storage cabinet were all next to each other. It was important to me that the table where the students work is the first thing, so I moved it closer to the door. To the immediate left now is a big metal storage cabinet, so I broke up all the putty-colored metal stuff.

A look around the room, moving left to right. I covered the storage cabinet with fabric from Hobby Lobby, laminated border and personal Disney pictures..

A view of the corner. The Super Duper decks are on book binder rings in visible pockets. The plastic drawers are lined.

I found the buckets at the Dollar Spot at Target and proceeded to use the "sticker sneeze" method of covering them with year.o.graphy stickers.

Here is a view of the red wall. Students' sticker charts will fill up the space in the brown border.

The chalkboard wall with vocabulary and dry-erase speech bubbles:

My desk. The top part is a screen divider from The Container Store. All those bright pink notes are new students I have to verify services for. Yikes!
The old bookshelf that was in my kids' nursery. It's been painted 3 times. My daughter thought it was boring, so she added leopard-print duct tape.
I hot-glued ribbon on the edges, but that wasn't enough for her.
 The whole thing:
Back to right behind the door - the Wall of Fame that students get to sign when they are dismissed.
Thanks for looking!

  1. Thanks, Carrie! How did your room set-up go today?

    1. I'm getting there, but I still have a long way to go. I haven't even started putting things on the walls yet!

  2. I really like the Wall of Fame idea! It gives students a sense of accommplishment and probably encourages the others as well!

    1. It was a way to cover ugly walls last year, but it was such a hit with the students that I plan to continue it!

  3. It looks great. We've been working in our room the past few days... Still not ready :-(

  4. What great end results! Love the wall of fame idea, and the brown taped off area for files. Thanks for sharing!
