I got this idea from a friend... It has worked well for me.
Cut up yellow and red cards. As in soccer, students are allowed to get two yellow cards before they get a red card. If a student is not behaving, I give them a yellow card. If they do it again, they get a second yellow card. A red card comes with a predetermined punishment. Mine is a visit with our director. So far I haven't actually had to give out a red card...I just make a motion to pick it up and whala...the offending student is on task.
