Personal space can be such a difficult concept for children to understand. I am sure many of you have great ways for teaching personal space, but I wanted to share what I did for one student in particular.
I observed a little kindergarten boy in the hallway, as he was always unable to keep his hands to himself. He was also not paying attention to where he walked most of the time, so he would walk right into people. The gym teacher came to me about the same child saying that he was constantly putting his hands on others in gym class. He had no sense of personal space!
