2016-2017 classroom reveal

I've wanted to share our classroom since kids returned to school last week, but I just couldn't find the time to do it! I'm pretty lucky because our room is pretty big and we have a ton of natural light and storage space! Our room is more open than it has been in the past. I got rid of a lot of furniture because we just didn't have the space to have so many bookshelves/ cabinets dividing the room into smaller spaces. We have more kiddos with wheelchairs this year, so we really need the space to be able to maneuver our kiddos throughout the room easily. Check it out!

The front of our room.

Student areas:
Student reading and schedule area
This is the area were students can read, play with trains/cards and/or blocks. All of the student choices are displayed on cards at the top of the bookshelf and the items are hidden/stored in the cabinets.

Area where students can use the light table and use magnets on the magnetic USA board.
Organizational areas:
This is where our Vision teacher keeps all of her supplies for kiddos with visual impairments.
All of our task boxes/ independent work activities
All our supplies for making adapted books/ materials (velcro, lamination, book binding, texturizing materials, etc.)
Staff areas:
My desk/work area
Communication board between paras and me
Our data wall!
Paraprofessional work space
Lastly, this is our sensory room. We share a small office with the OT and PT. It's a small space, but it's still a wonderful area! It's awesome because we can keep the really distracting items (like the ball pit) out of the classroom but still accessible for our kiddos.



Hope you've enjoyed it ;)
