Silence is golden

We are gearing up to the TAKS test in March and there is tutoring, small group work, computer work, etc. The problem with my class this year is that they can not be quiet. Period. I take away recess. I sign agendas. I give them my mad face. I pile on the work. Nothing. When we try to do fun stuff, they get out of control. When we do the required classwork, they get out of control. This year, my class has taken the fun out of teaching. To sum it up, the small group work was interrupted by LOUD TALKING. Maybe tomorrow, I can do the small group work going over reading passages...who am I kidding, it will be more of the same.
