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 fifth-grade teacher Tom D. of Milwaukee, Wisconsin shared with us, “At home, I have my own cleaning schedule for how often I vacuum or scrub the tub, but in my classroom, there are so many more little people; I’m really just guessing.”

Kindergarten teacher Kim M. of Hamden, Maine concurred. “The school cleaning staff is amazing, but let’s be honest, my kids’ germy hands touch all of the things all of the time. If I want to keep everyone healthy, I have to chip in!”

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.
