Blurt chart. Names taken off for confidentiality, but would be on blue tags. Smiley thru frown faces are warnings. If I take off circles with numbers, it is recess minutes students owe. If all circles are removed, student loses entire recess.
Bubble Gum Blurt Chart - this is something I created for my class to help encourage self control during instruction time. my students have 3 chances (3 pieces of gum per week) and if they interrupt or blurt out a piece is removed from their name and put into the LOST BUBBLES bucket. If they have any pieces left at the end of the week, they will receive a price of bubble gum. Hopefully this will help cut down on interruptions and talking out.
Give each kid three sticks. Each time a kid talks out of turn, take a stick away. Lose all three and talk out of turn again, get a red stick. Each red stick = lose 5 mins of recess (or whatever consequence you choose). Hmm.... Something to consider.
I took the blurt chart idea and made a clip chart. Everyone starts on 3. For each Blurt their clip moves down one. At the end of the day, they receive smarties candy based on the number they are on. (3 pieces for 3, 2 pieces for 2, 1 piece for 1 and 0 for 0).
