My son is in the 1st grade..he's very smart, above grade level on every subject and reads on a 3rd grade level. He's very bright, eager to learn and respectful...he can be a mr. Know it all....however he is having issues in school. He always wants to be called on when participating and gets upset if the teacher calls on another student...he gets further upset if the student is wrong and he knows the answer....he also gets upset if the teacher praises other students..he also gets upset if he doesn't win at games or whatever. He's gotten student of the month awards 3 times already...once for his class, once for spanish and once for gym. He's never received less than a 100 on any quiz so far..
Of course he receives disciplined at home for this behavior...and we constantly reiterate that school is for everyone and that he should be happy for his classmates. He of course gets plenty of attention and praise at home as well.

I would def. talk with the school counselor about this. Just because he is above average scholastically doesnt mean he is ready to skip grades emotionally. This is def a touchy situation as it does seem that your son is bored.
