I do the NOISE thing, too. However, when we get to NO, we have to work
without talking for five minutes. If folks are still talking, we are quiet
the rest of the class. I won't help students during these times, instead I
just quietly moniter and look for talking students. Anyone who talks after
that has to work alone, or copy a paragraph explaining why it's important
not to spend art time constantly talking. It doesn't happen often, so it
seems to work.

The best one that I've used from this list is the NOISE sign. If I say
noise level 1, 2 and 3, I take the E. If I have to say noise level and they
get quiet I don't take the letter. When I, S, and E are gone, we have no
art. Projects and supplies are take up and they put their heads down until
the teacher comes. I used this last year and my daughter used it for music.
I didn't take the I down all. They don't want to lose art. Thanks to this works. ---
