I have a bell (like at a store that you ring for service) and my students are aware that if I ring the bell once, that is the their warning that the noise level is creeping up too high. I usually warn them several times before a double ring, and a double ring means that we go to silent independent work. (I usually only make them work independently for a few minutes). This seems to be working, I started out having to ring it every few minutes, but as the year has progressed some days I don't have to ring it at all. I teach 5th grade, so I know sometimes they get really excited about what they are doing and they just need a reminder.
