Carpet Time
There are a few students in my class that are very disruptive while sitting on the rug for Calendar Time. I have tried letting these students bring a chair to the carpet, but it is not helpful. Any suggestions for how to make carpet time better?

I would assign seats for carpet time. Every student will have their own special square or place on the carpet. I would separate students who tend to play and talk to each other and position other students in a way that they can remain focused.

Yes. Seat them in a way that guides their behavior.

I have the students who are not behaving correctly to step away for time out. When I would do this before the students would get to time out and continue to misbehave. However I had a student demonstrate the correct way to stand in time out. I told them if they did this correctly I would not move their behavior clips and they could rejoin the group after a few minutes. We are usually doing something they want to be involved with so they are eager to get back to the group. I have seen the behavior improve some with these suggestions.

I have assigned seats for carpet time. I find that this is one way that you can manage behavior during this time. If children continue to be disruptive move them to the front where you can quickly correct behavior. I find that using quick reminders such as bubbles in your mouth helps students.

Praise sudent who are behaving during carpet time and maybe the student who are disruptive will stop so they may be praised too. Also try bringing those student to the front near you.

Place those students closer to you, so you can tap them when they start getting disruptive. Give them a special job to do on the carpet to keep them involved.

I would practice and demonstrate what good carpet behavior looks like. When you see it being done correctly, verbally praise those students. Even small candy like skittles or m&ms work.

I would assign an area for students to sit during carpet time to try and separate those that are causing the disruptions..

I would try setting up assigned places for each student, and separating students who may be disruptive when sitting next to each other. I would also not allow any student being disruptive to go up and help with the calendar activities. Maybe, you could also try taking something away from them when they are disruptive. Try taking away some recess time, or computer time.

Be sure to have assigned seats. If students cannot behave, have them sit next to you/at their desk instead of on the carpet

Sitting on the carpet is a bit inappropriate.

When I did observation hours, if any of the student's were misbehaving during carpet time she'd send them back to their seat to watch. It seemed to work because they didn't like being isolated.

Make sure that each student has an assigned spot on the carpet, then when it is evident they cannot sit next to certain people, simply move around the seats. If they still cannot, make them sit by themselves away from everyone. You should also have classroom behavior chart of some sort, then you could lower their behavior card for that day to let them know that they need to start behaving or their parents will be notified of their poor behavior.
