Do the schools where you sub at not have a free copy machine in the office? Or do they require you to provide your own paper?

In that case, put the work on the board and have kids copy it off the board onto their own paper.

Intimidation: Kids are like dogs, they can tell when you are afraid. They can tell if they can scare you, or in their words, 'punk you out'. First off get your confidence in order! You need to convey with your body language that you are not to be trifled with. First kid that tries to snap on you, shut it down! Tell them, Do you think you're going to play me? GET OUT. And then put them out; write a referral and send them to the office. Call the office if the child has the temerity to refuse to leave. Usually once you make an example out of one kid, the rest will calm down. It's nothing personal, they just thought it was fun to razz the sub. If you let yourself be razzed, they will keep doing it.

A death threat on paper should have been an instant suspension. What did you do when this happened?
