My 5 year old won't stop talking in class

I know that kids who are 5 or around 5 are typically pretty talkative but my son's teacher complains about it daily and gives him a red yarn necklace because of it sometimes she'll write a note on a red card.. I've talked to my child about it telling him while in class he is to " listen, learn, pay attention & be quiet" he knows BUT says he likes to talk.. His brain tells him to talk... wat should I do or how can I get him to understand that he can't talk in class? I've already told him I'd go up to his class and sit in...yeah... that didn't work (FAIL) lol I believe that because he talks and doesn't listen in class his teacher decided to side against him being taken out of Tk and put into kindergarten although he is smart and academically ahead of some kids in kindergarten

I know where you're coming from. This is kind of delicate because you want to encourage him to obey his teacher and the rules of his class, without stifling him and making him feel like he can't be himself. Have you sat down with his teacher and talked with her about this?
