You'll notice the nice big windows that give us lots of opportunities for natural light and an awesome view. This is from when we toured the house initially, so it's a 'before' shot:
Here is what walking in looks like now:
To the immediate right when you walk through the door is the area dedicated to geography.
To the left of the door is this wall:
The left half is the sensory section and the right side is the language arts section. The sensoral cubes contain some touch boards (top far left), touch fabrics (top center left), color tablets (bottom far left), and 2 sets of sound shaker cylinders that she's just started working with (bottom center left). The language cubes contain 3 different sound object boxes (top right cubes and bottom center right) and the materials for using the metal insets on the top of the shelf (paper and a color pencil). The sound object boxes that are currently there are A, G and S. (For more on what is in each box, check out this post) The white checked on the top of the shelf to the left is our placemats for messier activities. The door to the right leads to my new teacher's supply closet (such a luxury) and a bathroom which is convenient for water activities.
The wall to the left contains shelves of practical life activies:
Using tweezers, an alphabet puzzle, pouring water, stacking cubes, tissue for blowing her nose, and then pouring dry goods (currently plastic jewels that she is enamored with). On top of this shelf is my bell for starting and stopping class, a lamp and a glass candle holder that I just like a lot. Just to the right of that shelf is a basket with a few selected musical instruments:
I plan on switching this up a bit, but I'm trying to keep these instruments more 'musical' rather than just 'noisy.'
To the right of her little table is a reading basket:
So there it is, our new classroom! What do you think?
