Talking in class
Now I know that all students talk in class. I am in a class where a group of students will talk no matter what is going on in the classroom. A teacher could be teaching, students sharing reading aloud, administration talking to the class, important announcements on the intercom, or even testing. These students will talk through anything and will make it a point to talk over the teacher when they are talking or trying to redirect the students. I have moved these students, written them up, and contacted administration, I am not sure what to do any more to get these students to get disrupting my class.

An effective classroom management plan that consists of a behavioral chart needs to be implemented. This system must be put into effect consistently and apply to all students who display disruptive behavior. Parents should also be aware of any disruptive behavior.

Behavior management and parental involvement are both good solutions. I would also advise asking the administration for their help as well, since this is more than just during teaching. This could be a potential safety hazard. Having two forms of backup would be the best idea.

Hello,

I think that maybe if you implement a behavior plan for the class, the talking can be stopped. If students still continue with the behavior, maybe find the leading student and enforce something like a phone call home. This will hopefully show the other students in the class that are exhibiting the same behavior that they need to stop.

I would get them more involved in the classroom like make them hand out things or stand up at the board and write things or ask the questions. There talking would then be put to good use

When dealing with problematic students, I have found that having an incentive that can be taken away is helpful. For example, if the students have time for computer games on iReady, recess, or even the ability to work in partners with their friends, these privileges can be taken away. I would put strikes on the board and once they hit a certain number, a privilege is removed.

Keep in touch with the parents and really track the behavior.

If you have moved these students, written them up, and contacted administration, then administration should have already, or are in the process, of dealing with this. These students, if going through all these lengths to not stop, should be separated into entirely different classrooms.

I have been in classrooms just like this. I do believe that expectations should be reviewed every morning followed up by consequences. Recess is not a guarantee but the students love it. One time I wrote the word RECESS on the board and every time I was interrupted by students talking, I would not say anything, I would just go over and erase the letter R and so on. Students knew that if I erased the entire word RECESS that they would be sitting at their desks reading or doing work. It usually took until I got to the second to the last letter that they started to realized that I meant business and stopped. Good Luck!

I would suggest try to talk to administration and see what ideas they have. Maybe try other activities or work with the parents?
