I have this exact same thought all the time

I teach a 4/5 combo and they NEVER stop talking. It drives me crazy. Moving their seats doesn't help either; if the person they want to talk to isn't sitting next to them they just talk louder to whoever they're talking to. And I just wonder..."You guys see each other 5 days a week, 6 hours a day. What else is there to talk about?"

I was talking to a 4th grade teacher who has the same problem and her theory is that they talk so much at school because it's really their only social time. I mean, what do they do when they go home? Play Fortnite? Maybe do their homework? They probably wouldn't talk so much in class if they had other opportunities to socialize with kids their age.
