If it's SUNDAY....
Nibits for Newbies!
Keeping IT Clean!
So..WHO IS THE MOST IMPORTANT SCHOOL PERSON YOU NEED TO KNOW?
( OK...AFTER the Secretary!)
This is the person who can help make your life easier...
moving desks, tables, etc, etc..AND
KEEPING YOUR CLASSROOM
BUG & MAMMAL FREE
( LOTS of GERMS on tables, floors, deks, etc..etc )
These little "creatures" can make kids stay home,
can RUIN the best lesson ( if no one is there..the lesson has to be done AGAIN..
or the absolute worst...
THEY CAN MAKE THE TEACHER SICK!
SUB PLANS??? NOOOOOO!!!!!!
So...Let's worktogether to keep our classroom CLEAN!
So here is MY THEORY..
Our janitor only has "X" amount of minutes to clean MY room!
I want him to spend the MAXIMUM amount of time
cleaning the stuff
my students & I cannot!
So..I have 2 helpers each day who are the
CLEAN UP CREW
(This sample is available for FREE..click HERE!)
(while the rest of us are at the carpet listening to AUTHOR'S CHAIR)
is to stack ALL chairs into stacks of 6...
to pick up ANYTHING on the floor ( under tables & desks)
to use the push carpet sweeper to clean the floor!
THEN.....EVERY FRIDAY we
DE-GERM our classroom!
We take papertowels & SANITIZER
And wipe ALL surfaces!
I MEAN ALL!
Tables, desks, student whiteboards, chairs, pencils ( I know... "germy fingers" )
THE DOOR, pencil sharpeners...EVERYTHING!
Because...I want my students to
TAKE RESPONSIBILITY for their ENVIRONMENT!
You "live here' ...YOU 'clean it!"
THEY LOVE IT!
Then..after we leave..
the janitor can spend his time doing DEEP cleaning...whiteboards, dusting, windows, windowblinds...
stuff I can't get to & the kids cannot either!
Monday Morning....CLEAN CLASSROOM!
( I LOVE to start the week with a clean classroom!)
So...make friends with your janitor.
Keep your classroom CLEAN.
Get your kids involved!
After all...RULE # 5....KEEP YOUR TEACHER HAPPY!
