Personal space can be an issue for some students. It affects the student’s ability to make and keep friends. The social aspect of school is just as important as the academics. After trying different techniques to help this issue my social worker is credited for giving me the answer. Read the book, Personal Space Camp, to your class. After I read it, I felt like the clouds parted and suddenly the sun began to shine down on the subject of personal space. The book explains the issue is such as way that young students understand what it is and it gives the teacher vocabulary to use with your students. I highly recommend this book!
