Flu season is upon us! If you’re anything like me, a bottle of hand sanitizer is your prevention dejure.
I suggest keeping hand sanitizer readily available in your classroom. In order to make this process efficient, set up a hygiene station consisting of a box of tissues, a bottle of hand sanitizer, and a small trash can. To prevent those who overly use the sanitizer (I had a few boys who left the station reeking of bad tequila) consider instituting a “One Pump” rule. One pump of the regular bottle may still be too much for very tiny hands, so perhaps you may want to involve rubber bands. Here’s a quick tip to help your kids from using too much while saving them time and you money.
Simply wrap a rubber band around the neck of the bottle for a smaller squirt.
