My class is full of eager, hands-on learners. However, because every assignment we do is hands-on, we are constantly leaving our germs and possible sicknesses behind. YUCK!
I teach sixth, seventh, and eighth-grade students who have moderate and severe disabilities at a public middle school in Los Angeles.
My students are primarily from low-income households and may experience many barriers to school success. Despite these disadvantages, my students are the most positive and energetic students you’ll come across. My class learns within a self-contained classroom for the majority of the day because they need unique and intensive modifications to the curriculum due to their diverse types of disabilities.
Our class is in serious need of Clorox wipes, face wipes, and Lysol spray. Each day we disinfect our desks and chairs when we first enter our classrooms and as we leave for the day. We do this to help promote a hygienic class and lessen the possibility of student absences due to illnesses that could have been prevented had we sanitized our class daily.
My students work daily on Life Skills that help them to be more independent as they get older.
We are working on maintaining clean and organized workspaces, as well as clean and neat appearances to all. This is where the face wipes are crucial for our independent eaters.
The students have been absent less both last year and this year ever since we took a more active role in our classroom cleanup action plan. Clorox wipes and Lysol spray cut down the number of germs we touch throughout the day. It also helps my students apply these important daily routines at home as they finish eating, working in any area of the house.
