The classroom is still a work in progress and the kids will arrive on the 11th of March. To say I am excited is an understatement. Once again I am fortunate to have state of the art equipment and curriculum to be able to give these kids the best chance at learning all they can.
Yesterday I watched a documentary on Netflix called Loving Lampposts. Although I don’t agree with some of the things presented, there are definitely some things in there worth watching. One quote really struck me. “You haven’t got a big enough imagination of what your child could become.” ~Johnny. This is what keeps me going. I know I can make a difference. I feel it in my bones. I just want to be able to help these kids unlock their dreams.
To give you a glimpse into the classroom, I took a few pictures.
This is looking toward the front of the classroom. We have a Smart Board and a regular white board.
Also notice the cool rocking chairs! Love those!!
This is a view of the front from farther back, showing my awesome set of
windows and the student desks as well as the work/lunch table.
This is a view of the kitchen and storage area.
We have a stove and a refrigerator. This way we can learn to cook and clean.
The entrance to the room as well as our kitchen sink.
This is the creation station. Manipulatives, markers, construction paper, etc.
The Calming Room. A place to take a break.
Not pictured is the wonderful swing that we will have for another calming break option.
I look forward to the many decorations that my kids will help me put on the walls. The room needs their touch to make it complete.
In just over a week, my classroom will be filled with the sounds of learning, ABA style! I can’t wait!
Thanks for popping in!
