Too much talking!

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I've been using the RC approach for 4 years now. I am at it alone in a school of PBS... everyone here is constantly having to give prizes for expected behavior (and there are no consequences- everything we could do has now been taken away).

My classroom children know that when one person is talking everyone else should listen. We have modeled it and I remind them many times each day. (We have been in school 10 weeks now.) However the talking persists. They will interupt me whenever they feel like it. I can hold my hand up until I am blue, but if they have something to say they're going to do it. I have about 10 children out of 22 that are like this.

What would be a logical consequence to this? Any suggestions are dearly welcome!
