Musical Hoops

Pre-schoolers gain a better understanding of personal space by playing this modified version of musical chairs. Played like musical chairs, students circle around a ring of hula hoops as music plays. When the music stops everyone needs to find a hoop to stand in. For the first round, everyone gets a hoop and the class has a discussion about personal space. Then as hoops are removed, students must squeeze together in hoops. Try to keep playing until only a few hoops are left!

I love Lesson Planet because it connects me to great websites that have a wealth of information for myself and students. For example, I recently found two great history websites that have a huge amount of pictures--a great place for my foreign language students who need visual aids to comprehend American history. I love Lesson Planet because the lessons are often easy to adapt for a variety of learners.
