My daughter apparently is "chatty" while at school. That is, she is disruptive to the class by talking to other students at inappropriate times (like when the teacher is teaching the class). We have been asked to help problem solve. Talking with my daughter, she complains that she is bored during class. For example, she brings home sheets where she is writing letters (the letter 'G' for example). She already knows how to write the letter G and her writing (printing) is beautiful and well done. She first learned to write letters in preschool, and then again in kindergarten, and then again in 1st grade, and now for the 4th time she is practicing writing letters in 2nd grade. While I wish she would not be disruptive, I understand why she loses focus. Early on, she expressed boredom in math. I was aware this might be an issue because she scored in the 93rd percentile on the Cogat test she took in 1st grade. At the district's learning coordinator's suggestion, I asked if she could be assigned additional problems. Apparently she has to complete more math problems at school than others, so she is the last one done. She says that she doesn't talk while doing the extra problems and has not complained about having to do more work that others. As a result, I asked if she could be asked to complete additional work in all subjects, to keep her focused and to limit her disruptive nature. The teacher didn't respond favorably to that, and instead, wants her to sit in isolation away from the other students until she learns to not talk at inappropriate times. She has expressed boredom in other subjects as well. When I review her work, it is usually very well done. Neat, tidy, meeting standards and expectations. She reads chapter books that are mid-4th grade level. We have spelling homework at home, which she puts minimal effort in and usually gets everything write including the bonus challenge words and using the words in a sentence. I'm concerned. No, I don't want her being disruptive in class. However, I don't want her to get the label as the "bad kid" in the classroom by having her sit in a separate isolation desk. She does good quality work and is very capable as a student. I wish that she wouldn't talk, but my wishing does little good. I have a parent-teacher conference coming up this week. What suggestions would you have for me?
