    • Speaking from a kid who just always said the correct answer or had my hand raised first, teachers want to give other kids the ability to answer and pay attention

    • As a teacher we do this because we know the student who has their hand raised for a while knows the answer however when someone stretches we use it as an excuse to give them an opportunity to speak and answer. Also a lot of times students think it’s nerdy to raise their hand and answer lol

    • THEORY: Pretend to stretch if you want to raise your hand but are nervous and when the teacher calls on you, say "Oh I was just stretching, but sure! I'll answer/ask a question!" Then do so, and either you get a free pass because you were "caught off guard" or you're a badass for the same reason!
