I'm a little confused - do your aides have a prep period during the school day? When they're not supporting students? Or, are you asking about time before and after school? If that's the case, I would be having them work on prepping materials. Doesn't matter if it's for this week, this year, or next year.

I think paras are self-motivated when they have tasks to do and explicit instruction. When do they need to show more self-initiation?

When it comes to playing favorites, you need to explicitly set the guidelines. The same with personal space (with you? with the kids?) - sounds like you need to have a team meeting and go over expectations. Maybe create a "spring refresher" guideline of what you expect and what is/isn't appropriate behavior.
