    Trader Joe's has Kerrygold for the lowest price I've found. I stock up and freeze it as I'm not a fan of Trader Joe's or it's location.

I'm not saying he's a super bright genius or anything... but seriously. He knows how to form the letter G already...

    They put him in the talented and gifted (TAG) program to study math and he loves it. The report last week was that he "listened well during TAG". Hopefully the comments like that continue and the trend is noticed by those that matter.




    Thanks, Tomi.
    If you think it's a "being bored" issue then ask the teacher if she has additional things he could have at the ready, to work on, when he finishes the assigned work. If she doesn't have anything then ask if he could bring things from home-- books to read, workbooks,etc.

    Another thing is to see if he could be paired with a student that could use help. He would need to understand that being an "aide" would require extreme big boy behavior on all fronts.

    I also wonder about her "tactics". If I had a student that ran to be the first in line, to his cubbie etc I would tell them, "We walk to get in line, please go back and try again. Having him return to his starting spot and walk, not race, will show him that having to do it over again puts him more "behind" than if he didn't race in the first place.

    Sorry about the student loans. I just try not to let them stress me. And it is possible he is just bored. Does he like books? Allowing him to read while others are working could help. You are doing great! Just take deep breaths and try to remember this is just a moment and it will pass.

    I definitely related to Brady on the attention/memory issues. My whole time in public schools (K-12), people were constantly checking in with me for spacing out, getting bored, forgetting things to do. Even if it was just told to me and I responded to show that I understood and heard them, I could forget instantly. Frustrating for everyone involved! Now I know I have Executive Functioning Disorder. It's just the way my brain is wired, not chemicals or anything. Patience goes a long way, let me tell you!

    His problem is not while he's doing his work - its during the group lecture time that he has his problems. They have "circle time" and this is when he will roll around on the floor, fiddle with stuff he's not supposed to fiddle with, tap his pencil on his table, etc.

    I have address the whole "He's bored" thing and she 'assures' me that she provides challenging material for the brighter kids. He is in her top reading and top math group (level 4 I think she said) and is now involved in TAG (talented and gifted) to learn higher math skills.

    OMG do you have any idea how much THIS sounds like me???? I've always called it being scatter brained.

    My mom has it too, it definitely has genetic roots. Primal helps a lot for my general spaciness and treating my anxiety helps too, but I'm still a total scatter brain and it's not something I can really train myself out of. Just have to learn how to work around it as much as possible. I haven't ever been able to identify situations where I get consistently distracted, but regular classroom environments, if I'm not loving whatever is being presented to me, I could NEVER pay attention.
