More Circle/Carpet Time Strategies
-incorporate animal walks (frog, bear, crab, snake etc.) as a way to transition to circle or seated activity
-incorporate reward system (small piece of gummy or crunchy candy, stickers, stamp to hand, high five, verbal praise) intermittently for appropriate behavior. Be sure to simply explain appropriate behavior (good sitting, etc.).
-massage, tight squeezes, bear hugs, or deep pressure onto shoulders as needed
-textured objects taped under chair or table that the child can quietly feel during circle or work time
