K-4, Raise Hands or Call Out?

Hi. I'm new here, and my undername describes it all: I LOVE substituting, when things go well, but often HATE it, when I feel I'm not controlling the kids, and the clock doesn't seem to move!

Other teachers often "bark" at the kids, and I want to be more pleasant than that, but then find I may get walked over.... Lots of fodder there for discussion, but for now, I'd like to ask....

Is there a half-way point between having K-4 kids raise their hands to answer, and calling out? I like to "discuss" the subjects and have kids just answer, then find they're all calling out at once, some with distracting commments. Then it's a new rule, raise hands before speaking (even though it slows the discussion and can get boring for everyone). Then one or two will still call out, then it's a warning, the discussion becomes a battle of wills, and I start hating the whole process. HELP!
