Use green, yellow, and red colored cups for group work. When a table gets too loud, change the cup to yellow. If the table continues to be too loud, the cup gets changed to red; this means a loss of group time. Students now have to do their work independently and silently.
I had the student work in small groups and focus on one feeling in the small group. The groups came back and reported to the class. They had to make the feeling face in the circle at the top. You can find this sheet download below.
