    I teach almost exclusively on the carpet (first grade) BUT I learned this from where I student taught in Kindergarten and Fourth grade, and in that district, children are at the carpet for all "learning" times K-5. It's not required or anything, it's just that in that district, that's what works for them. When I student taught 4th grade, I like the intimacy of teaching and reading novels on the carpet. I also felt like in math, kids were better at talking their way through a problem on the carpet. Logistically, they were more able to turn their heads towards each other, respond, make eye contact, etc...
