Ds started kinder on sept. 3rd, this is the begining of the 3rd week of school and i get a note today asking if i could call his teacher to set up a conference. So i called her and she informed me she has had to move ds 3 times already becuase of his talking, non of his work is ever completed cuz he wont stop talking, the other kids are asking him to stop and he wont. Everyday he brings home a chart that has either a green, yellow, or red stamp (green=good yellow=had warnings red=bad day) i know hes been having problems cuz everyday hes had either a yellow or red beside for 4 maybe 5days. i talked to him take things away try a earlier bed time and nothing has helped.. any advice?????

Start taking away things that he likes at home.  No TV/computer/game time.  Make sure that he is getting plenty of exercise and reinforce the school rules at home.

Ds had that issue, or something similar anyway, last year.  So what we did was work with his teacher for school consequences and gave home ones too.  He lost things at home for red days, like no t.v./computer/games.  He lost toys, the chance for sleepovers, the chance to go places, etc.  If he was on red for more than one day in a week, the consequences escalated.  He'd lose toys, go to bed early, basically be in time out all night, etc.  He cleaned up his act really quickly.  Between losing free time at school and his loved things at home, he decided he needed to work at fixing his issues.  Find out what motivates your kid and use it.  Good luck!

I do take things away as a matter of fact his i-pad (i didnt buy his dad did) and t.v he can no longer havr til thur. i made him do some extra "homework" i have worksheet books for his age. AND i told him since he cant stop talking in class he had to be quite during dinner and he couldnt do that. it was a constant reminder shh no talking..

 Don't forget to be consistant with your disipline, meaning that you need to punish in the same way for a month before you determine if it is really working or not.  Trying something once or twice will never have any impact on your child's behavior.

Maybe ask to have a little note stuck to his desk.
DS has a little note taped to his desk that says no blurting because he'll just yell an answer or start talking but that visual reminder helps.

Its always the ipad gets taken first (his world ends) and from his atittude after that other things either get taken or an early bedtime.

Thats a GREAT idea since alot of times if you remind him he will be ok for a while, sometimes. BUT hes just starting in sounding words out so idk how much that would help.

Maybe make something visual and ask to have it taped to his desk.  They do that a lot for special Ed kids, it's like a face with their hands over their mouth that's says quiet mouth on it.  Talk about it ahead of time so he knows what it means and why it is there.

 My daughter is the same exact way. We actually get happy when she comes home with a yellow cause she usually comes home with red. Her teacher figured out if she puts headphone on my daughter she will sit still and finish her work during quiet time. Also Ask the teacher if their is an aid in the room and see if the aid can do some one on one time with him to get his work finsihed.

My sons old school did the color card thing. We told him in kindergarten anything other than green is unacceptable. He is now in 6th grade and has never had to move a card accept the one time in 4th grade he forgot to move his.lunch card to hot lunch (he always brought his lunch).
