Does she have a classroom management system? Can you use it for consequences? On the other end of the spectrum, can you put a bag of m & m's in your pocket and discretely pass one out to people who are on task? Could you start a game for management purposes? Like the 3 people who are on task most often during that time get some sort of reward (that the teacher sponsors). How about drawing a baseball diamond on the board. As you see kids working for a specified time period, you put them on a base. When you see kids off task, they get a strike. 3 strikes and a working name gets out. Girls against boys. Group against group? This could all be done without words. The reward could be the win over the course of a week. Maybe they could have 5 minutes of freetime?

I would also wonder why they are doing things like SSR at the end of the day. It seems like with you in the classroom, those kids could be doing something more engaging to them? Some sort of small group reviews? They could even compete against groups in a larger group review.
