Setting up a classroom with special needs is like an intricate puzzle. "Cutesy" is not a factor... however Functionality IS. When setting up my room, I consider distractions, runners, transitions and behavior triggers. Like my post yesterday... simply setting up a Listening Center is a headache because it needs to be out of reach etc...
With that being said.. here is a tour of the furniture in my classroom!!! (Don't mind the mess everywhere... the old bulletin boards etc.!)
(Blue table in the back corner)
(TEACCH Task Box Set-Up)
(Red Table...old bulletin board....)
(Sensory Corner.... Light box, dizzy disc's, bouncy balls, bean bag chairs, swing and comfy chair)
(Green Table... Technology Center!)
(Student desks... in the shape of a "U". This makes it great for whole class activities/lessons)
(Another view of the kiddo desks... facing the white board...where Calendar board and morning meeting board will be!)
Tomorrow, I will share my bulletin boards... interactive and student work boards!
