Ugh, classroom management

I have 24 years of experience. I'm in a new school and new district for me. It's a positive environment and my principal is encouraging and positive for the students. That being said I have realized that I have a difficult class. It was separated into two because of their behaviors and the toxic pairing. It is a class with a lot of heart and energy. My biggest issues are blurting, wanting to control, being off task, and being a class clown (getting laughs from others). I have a positive tally mark for positive behavior where the class earns a reward time for 100 tallys and for individual behavior the students earn a warning first, consequence second, and meeting with parents third. I have some days better than others but in all I feel like I'm warning all day, nit-picking behaviors all day and losing instructional time waiting and reteaching procedures. My question is this, is this a class that needs me to change up my behavior program and keep it fresh or do I just need to double down on my procedure that I have? What do you think?

If anything, classes with difficult behaviors need more structure, not less.

I like your approach of success for one helps all.

Stick to your guns on warnings and then escalating consequences.

100 Tally Marks

I think you have the right idea.

I might cut the number of tally marks needed so there are rewards more often. When kids see the reward, they will be more likely to strive to get the tally marks. After a while, I would slowly increase the number of tally marks needed so they will be challenged.
