Carpet time

How do you handle it when a child won’t come to the carpet for learning time?

Totally depends on the kid. If you can, find out why they don't want to. (It could be as simple as not wanting to sit on the floor in a dress - in which case, I let them bring a desk chair over and put it in back.)

Since you are teaching when they get to the rug, once you rule out other issues, tell them calmly that they need to come to the rug or you will teach them the lesson (or read the book, whatever the activity is) when the others are having centers, or recess, or gym...something fun.

If you have an assistant, you could ask them to help the child to come join the class (gently guide them.)

Good luck!

I start with this. Also, it depends if the child is being distracting and/or disruptive. If not, I don't worry too much about it, give lots of praise to those who are doing what I asked, and then work with the child at another time on following directions, etc. It also depends if this is the only battle with the child or one of many.
