    timer

    I use a timer. When the students start talking, I start the timer and hold it up. It is amazing how quickly this gets them on task. I write the time they've lost on the board so they are aware. The time they've wasted is either taken from recess, after school, or reward time that I give them. After I implemented this, my students only waste about a minute/day. I know that this is not the most popular way, but my master teacher suggested it is the only thing that works. Good luck!
