Clean, Healthy Classroom Management Techniques

A healthy classroom is an effective classroom. You can’t teach if all your kids are sick, right?
But getting and maintaining a healthy classroom can be tricky. Germs and viruses seem to be bred in the close environs of a grade or middle school classroom.

So today on, frequent contributing writer Janelle Cox, herself a seasoned educator based on the East Coast, takes a look at some ways that teachers can go about creating good hygiene habits in the classroom, with the hopes of preventing kids from getting sick.

Janelle’s ideas include:

  • Wipe Down Everything
  • Teach Students About Health and Hygiene
  • And More!

Janelle sums up her article like this: “Maintaining a clean and healthy classroom doesn’t have to be a chore, it can be done and should be done. Dealing with classroom germs is a team effort between you, your students, and the custodian. By asking students to follow good hygiene habits in your classroom, as well as keeping it clean, you can keep your room free of infectious diseases and germs.”
