My ds is an awesome student and makes a's. He is in the gifted program for reading in school and reads and comprehends on a 7th grade level. He is regular math this year, but was in the gifted program last year for math and maintained an A all year....
Lately in school, his teacher has been sending notes home regarding his behavior and I'm at a loss as to what to do.......
He makes noises and can't seem to stop. This was a problem in the beginning of the year and I explained to his teacher that he was probably bored, given that the first month is a review.
He teacher is very supportive and kind, but today she asked me to talk to him again! I've talked to him repeatedly and have tried to figure out why he is doing this.......
I feel like he may be trying to impress some of the other kids. He has always been very astute and serious and he may be trying to fit in? He did say he likes to make the other kids laugh.... Not totally sure this is it OR He may just be bored.
My question is - Why the noises? Yesterday he was hollering across the class at another child WHILE the teacher was giving instruction?
Any suggestions or help would be appreciated! Thanks!
Trying to do the right thing with three kids and a hubby.
