If your lessons can involve individual students (think role playing a problem or event, using a manipulative, etc.), they may try to be more positive/quiet in an effort to be chosen.
Remember to allow movement if/when possible, within the lesson.
Directly coach them on how to be a good listener, model, allow for practice, praise.
If a discussion... try using a 'talk' stick (toy microphone, stuffed animal, wand, etc.); something only the speaker is allowed to hold; conversely, only the person with the stick may speak at that time.
Catch them being good; raise colors for positive students (or whatever your management system uses)... incentive for those not being attentive.
Be consistent in your expectations/consequences.

It will get better! Have fun.
