Maybe a reward?

Sometimes if they are really quiet I give them a scoop of beans into their reward jar. When the jar is full, they get to invite a friend from another class to eat lunch in the room with me. We did girls one week, boys the next. It really went quite well.

I agree, you would think that by April they would know to stand quietly in line.

Mine have gotten into the habit of being "pokey" about lining up. I sometimes get a timer and make a game of seeing how quickly and quietly they can line up. If they do it in less than 20 seconds, they get a scoop of beans. (bulk pinto beans - they're cheap).

Good luck! I'm open to suggestions if anyone can think of something marvelous!
