My room theme is a monkey theme this year, so check out the bottom of this post to look at some of the pictures of my room! It's not completely finished yet as I have the next two days to continue to work on it. School doesn't officially start until Thursday. :)
1. The first free item is a testing in progress sign that I created for my door. I want people to know when I am testing in my room so that they don't barge in and ask for information right then and there. This is what I came up with.
2. The next item is a monkey parent letter. I like to send this letter early in the year to introduce myself and tell about their child. I usually write what day their child is being seen for speech, and I include my contact information so that they can contact me if they have any questions. I got this idea from the parent letter from [simply speech.].
NOTE: For some reason my google docs. will not let me upload this form. If you would like this, please send me a quick email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Sorry for the inconvenience!
3. The next item is a goals sheet quick reference form. I like to send these forms home about a month into speech therapy so that the parents know exactly what I am working on with their children. I also hope that since the parents know the goals they will be more willing to work on these goals with their children at home.

4. The last item is the SLP planner that I have used for the past few years. I really like this because I can customize it however I want. This year I ordered a planner from May Books, but I will probably still use pieces from this printable planner in my lesson planning.
Check out some pictures of my speech room below!
A view from my door. There's my desk and my tree with monkeys.
My white board. This is a view from my desk.
My cupboards. They are open bookshelves, so I use a curtain to "close" them. Preschoolers tend to get distracted easily, so I have to hide some of the games from them.
My front door! Welcome to Speech!
I still have a few things that I want to do, and luckily I have time to do it!
Finally, I updated on Facebook that I was at the emergency animal hospital last night with my kitty who ate a piece of a lily petal. He's going strong, and he'll be at the vet for the next 2-3 days. The doctors are hopeful that he'll pull through. Thank you for all of your kind words and thoughts. I appreciate it. :)
