Teaching Tip for Cold and Flu Season!
When it comes to winter, Cold and Flu Season is here. How can you help stop the spread of germs in the classroom? It’s an endless battle in the classroom and daycare to keep those germs from spreading. Runny noses seems to be the popular “Look” of the young classroom kiddos.
Washing hands, washing tables, anti bacteria pumps are constantly being done, but that doesn’t solve all the problems of spreading germs. What about crayons, and tools used in the classroom that can’t be easily washed?
Help Stop Germs in the Classroom
One great idea is Alcohol and a Spray Bottle! Fill a spray bottle full of alcohol and spray the marker bin, pencils, scissors, tables and toys. It dries fast and disinfects at the same time. Once I started doing this in my classroom I saw a difference in sickness in the room. It seemed like I had less kiddos absent.
Alcohol is a perfect germ disinfectant because it is cheap and dries instantly. Also it is impossible to wash everything the kiddos touch daily, but this helps some of the problems of germs in the classroom. I sprayed toys and kindergarten tools after school and during times the kiddos were not in the classroom.
Use alcohol spray in the classroom and keep those germs away!
