I feel for you

I second the reward the good behavior but don't point out the negative approach. I also agree with sitting down with him to decide on which single behavior to work on. Anything you can do like that to build an individual relationship with him will help. If he begins to feel that you are looking out for him and not just displeased with him, he may listen better to you and try a little harder.

I love the tic tac toe idea! I might try tweeking it by putting an X on his board when you notice a positive behavior, and having him then put an O on it, also. That way he is noticing that you have acknowledged his efforts and will feel rewarded by getting to play the game. He will get to "play" every time he does something noteworthy.

Have you considered whether this child might be on the asperger's spectrum or have obsessive compulsive disorder? If so, he might really benefit from getting counseling outside of school, if parent's can afford it.
