I'm a new sub but I have a general question. I've only subbed a handful of times but in every classroom I've been in...it seems like the kids get out of their chair at their own discretion. Moving their table or self up the behavior chart, throwing something away, sharpening their pencil, and the teacher seems to let them! I've observed in a couple classes...so I've seen that in action. But this definitely bothers me. It makes me feel as though they can just get up and do whatever they want, whenever they want...and it seems very distracting. So my question is....is this something that is the norm in most classrooms? Or are the classes I've subbed for and observed just out of the ordinary?
