I have pretty much worked out all the kinks to my naptime finally this year. It has taken a lot of work, but I have at least 1/2 and usually more of my class who sleep every day. There is one, though, who has only slept one day all year. Instead he lays over on his mat and makes all kinds of noises (like guns, airplanes, etc) and rolls and crawls all over the floor. He folds his mat up like a cave and crawls into it, picks it up and smacks it on the ground. I've tried everything I can think of. We've sat by him, put him on our laps, patted his back, ignored him, talked to him, talked to dad, removed him from the room. Nothing helps. Yesterday, I had to walk all the way over there to find out who he was talking to-HIMSELF! Everyone around him was asleep. I talked to dad and he suggested giving him a book. Dad said "I know that he will be quiet and look at a book on his mat." WRONG! The two days we tried it, he was throwing the books up in the air, sliding them across the floor, putting them under the cabinet. Any other great ideas I could try with him? I don't really care whether or not he sleeps. But I need him quiet and in his space so that my other kids can nap.
