Welcome to Mrs. Kristin's Speech Room!

Last week, Jenna over at Speech Room News asked us all to take pictures of our therapy rooms and share how we organize our space. I wanted to share with you how I set up my speech room. I actually share my room with another SLP. We have the room split in half, divided by a book shelf. Here are some shots of my side of the room :)


This photo is taken from the door. You can see my desk by the window and my therapy table in the middle. Check out my cute rug from Home Goods!

Here is a shot of my desk. I have a black bin with file folders of lessons, themed units, and materials on the left. The bin labeled notebooks holds compostion books I use with both my speech and language students. My laptop. On the right, is my handy dandy dish rack turned into folder organizer (thank you Pinterest!). Here I hold all my files with open re-evaluations or upcoming IEPs.


This picture is my students' view from the therapy table. I have my data binders divided by grade behind me, the behavior chart, and Braidy! Having a white board sure is handy! You can also see my giant mirror on the floor that is great for oral motor activities.

Speaking of oral motor, here is my mini oral motor kit. I have tongue depressors, cotton balls, straws, Marshallow Fluff, and bubbles!
This is the other end of my side of the room. You can see my bookshelf with both stories and resources for me, my oh so popular game shelf, and other resources stashed away in my limited space!

Let me know if you have any questions about anything you see here. I plan on doing a few posts going into detail on some specifics from my room. Have a great day!

  4. I MISS my horseshoe therapy table! I have a rectangular table this year - boo! Please describe the visuals you have on the white board. I see some sort of blue circle, a hand, and some nuts....??? Thanks! Katie FriscoSpeech@gmail.com

    1. The visuals you see are part of the Story Grammar Marker program. The blue circle represents the characters, the star represents the setting, the heart represents feelings, the shoe represents the "kick off" or starting events, the nuts are actually beads that represent what happened first, second, third... And the bow represents the conclusion (wrap up!). It is a fantastic program that is visual and tactile. It's great for story reselling and comprehension. Let me know if you have specific questions about the program!

  5. Very nice room I have a round table which works most of the time. But my desk is no where that organized.

  6. Love your room! Do you find it really helpful to keep track of data by grade in those binders? I'm still torn on how I want to do it-
