    I try to get at least 1 grade per week. It is the middle of the second nine weeks now for us. Many teachers have been complaining that they barely have any grades yet since there have been so many interruptions lately. I try to have at least one quiz and/or test weekly in each subject weekly to give the kids a fighting chance. If there are only a few grades, it doesn't seem fair to the kids if they have a bad day. As a first year teacher, it is hard to judge what to grade and how often to grade. It seems that many of the teachers that I have mentored have either way too many grades that they are overwhelmed or not enough to be fair.

    You will do fine. Take a deep breath. Think about a participation grade, some extra quizes, and journal grades. That will help you make it thru this grading period.
