I had a class of third graders just like that a few years ago. They were also “that” group since K. I did exactly what you’re doing until it became habit. It took a long time. I tried using a lot of positive reinforcement, framing my language as “being an active learner”. I tied the behaviors I wanted to see to table points so they would remind each other. I explicitly taught how to remind others nicely. It took forever and was exhausting for me, but probably by the end of Oct. you could really see a difference. It was never perfect, but basically they had developed bad habits that they had to unlearn and replace.
