Your classroom management strategies

I just started a 6 week summer school position. In my head, I always feel like I have good classroom management. It's not until I'm presented with a bunch of rambunctious young 3rd graders that I realize that I don't have the best classroom management. I don't think it's terrible, but I run out of ideas quickly. I try to point out students who have good behavior, stay firm with the misbehaving students, keeping promises and not fake threats, etc. But students still seem to continue misbehaving. I really want to avoid saying the students' name over and over as I know that's not effective.

What are some strategies that you have found to be effective? (Also, I understand this is a summer school position. These kids are smart and know I won't be around long).

I write all of the kids names on the board. When it gets too loud, I walk over w/ a visa and find anyone whose tone is decent. I announce how much I like the quiet voice tone they are using and put stars by their names. ( I have taught 3rd for yrs.) Usually everyone lowers their voice tone. I do it if most have not gotten seated quickly either. Then I'll put stars by the kids who make it back asap too. It is effective 99%of the time. Good luck! I think 3rd is the best grade ever!

Whole Brain Teaching can turn the class around in one day.
Just Google it and start by teaching the 5 rules and the scoreboard.
