Classroom Cleaning Checklist
Keeping a clean classroom is important to you. But how often should classroom bookshelves be cleaned? What about baskets? And how about those shared surfaces that students touch daily?
As first-grade teacher Katie M. of Arlington, Virginia shared with us, “I know how frequently I’m supposed to vacuum my house, and scrub my tub, but when it comes to the areas of my classroom, I’m just guessing.”
Fourth-grade teacher Sarah W. of Austin, Texas concurred. “The school cleaning staff is amazing, but I know there are parts of my room that are my responsibility to keep clean, especially the things that my students are always touching!”
So we developed a teacher essential just for you! This classroom cleaning checklist breaks down how often to clean your classroom areas. All classroom cleaning tasks are grouped by cleaning frequency, from daily to yearly. By using this checklist as a guide, you’ll ensure that your learning space is clean and germs and dirt are kept at bay.
