I usually explain to ds why he shouldn't do something in school. When I do that, it usually stops. If it became a problem there would be consequences at home. Lose Wii or cartoons.

Well, my daughter sometimes talks in class.  i talked to the teacher and though she notices it, she said it doesn't bother her because (weirdly) they are talking about school.

But, I did tell the teacher to tell me if it gets to be too much.  At their school, they usually use the stop light method (green = good, yellow = warning, red = not so goood!!).  If my kids are not on green, they are not allowed to watch TV, play their video games, or whatever else they are into at the moment.

It is more important that the teacher does something at the time that the talking occurs, especially with the younger kids as they need immediate consequenses.  At home I would take away a favorite privilege for misbehaving in school to reinforce that I think that school is important.

I think it's an issue that the teachers are going to have to take care you.  All you can really do is remind her that talking in class has its time and place.

I agree with Steel. If this is something the child continues to do maybe the teacher can come up with a simple goal/ reward at the end of the day for being quiet. Then move the goal to the end of the week. The prize can be a sticker or a bringing a special book home for the evening to read.

If the child can write, why not send in a small notebook for them to jot their thoughts down on instead of speaking when it's not the time to do so.

This, and I would try to get to the bottom of the issue of WHY he is talking so much. Once we figure out the cause, it might help us work with him to fix the issue.

Take away a privilege, but school should give some type of punishment too
