    I have only subbed 5 days so far, but a teacher friend gave me stickers to tuck in my bag and they are useful in many ways. I used them yesterday in 7th grade... if the student was on task I simply stuck a smilely face sticker on the back of his/her hand without saying anything else. Pretty soon others noticed and started to work to "earn" a sticker. In elementary school they can be used in the same way or as rewards for a job well done. I know some teachers use candy, but a sub doesn't always know about allergies so I have a "No food reward" policy. I also have a few books that I enjoy reading ( I raided my children's book shelves) in case I have extra time. I have a novel for myself in case I have too much free time. Lastly, I carry a sleeve of crackers and breath mints.
    Hope this give you some ideas.
