It may be "annoying" for the other children, but children will often use a running monologue to explain to themselves what they are doing. This is a tool for learning, not a bad habit to be discouraged, and precedes the internal monologue that most people use to keep track of what they are doing and what they will do next. Talk to the teacher to try to find a way your child can use this self-talk without annoying other children--perhaps by speaking more softly or being allowed to do some of his work in areas where this tendency will not distract others.
