Classroom Environment Checklist


Children must first feel safe while at school before they can be expected to learn. Creating an environment that is conducive to learning is both an art and a science, but a classroom checklist for teachers can help them incorporate new ideas and techniques to observe children while they learn. This checklist encompasses the following fields:

  • • General safety
  • • Student work spaces
  • • Wall displays
  • • Other observations
  • • Comments
