4 Year Old Not Sitting Still


My 4.5 yr. old boy is having problems sitting still and quiet during circle time at preschool. I realize this is a common issue with his age and being a boy, but wanted to see what discipline is recommended. Right now, the teacher is taking time away from the playground, which happens every day he is at school. It just seems like this will be something he will deal with until he matures. I know it can frustrate the teacher, but his personality is all boy and I am not sure time outs will change his energy level and inability to hold comments until the right time.His impulsiveness has been an ongoing battle since he was born, doing/speaking first and then thinking. Is there anything discipline-wise I can do at home to help? I've used the tickets and"kicked out of Eden" punishment for home, but not sure how to apply that at school.
