This week in social skills, we focused on our March unit of personal space.  Each child used a small hula-hoop to visualize “personal space.”  We first practiced staying in our hula-hoop “space” while sitting in a circle. During our movement song, each child carried a hula-hoop and the music stopped whenever the hula-hoops touched.  Finally, we set our hula-hoops on the floor and practiced moving between them together to build awareness of others in the room and maintaining appropriate space while moving.  Finally, each child practiced imagining a hula- hoop around themselves to visualize their “personal bubble.”
