I had a meeting with my sons teacher and she told me that he has a hard time focusing on the homework at school. I have noticed that when he is reading at home that he tends to lose focus and sometimes it gets frustrating for me. But now his teacher is going to move him from a desk of 5 kids to a desk where he will be alone. She says that he gets distracted by what the other kids are doing. Sometimes he misses out on part of recess so that he can do his classwork in peace.
He can sometimes be sensitive and I am worried he will feel sad or left out by being a desk by himself but I told her I was willing to give it a try because I don't want him held back in Kindergarten.
Does anyone have some tips on what I can do to help motivate him or to keep him on track at school? He has played sports (baseball and flag football) and sometimes lost his focus during that but I think well he was 5 so that seems normal, right? I do not think he is ADD or ADHD but I have no idea what to do. He is only child in my home and has a step-brother at his father's home.
When he is at school he is very talkative, hyper, and "wild". At home he is not like that, only the occasion that he has a friend over that he hasn't seen in a while.
SUGGESTIONS PLEASE!! Thank you~
