I almost answered as an elementary teacher where I would say do a quick exercise to get the wiggles out and then try working again. If it’s middle school, I would get the other students working and then spend time on the one not following the rules. Have a quiet conversation. Maybe they do need a wiggle break. I would want to know what the student is thinking and how we can get back to everyone working.

Even though it's middle school, I still do brain or wiggle breaks. Their attention span is still limited and if it's 90 minute blocks, that's a long time. I'd say " wow!

oops....sent too soon
but I'd say " wow! Jill has an idea. Let's all take 1 minute to stretch and shake it out. We'll come back at the doorbell "
This way you're not calling out the student and you can wander over and have that quick, discreet chat

The above are great. Narration of behavior is also good (noticing what is going on and staring it clearly). I would also want to know if the student has an IEP or a BIP in place

like

Give the rest of the students independent work or instructions so you can talk to the student one on one.

I’d agree with everything that has been said so far, and maybe also add some proactive strategies and tools you’ve given the students in your class to offer the student running around some suggestions for getting back on track.
