    I almost always have grading to do; I try to catch up with it on weekends. Some things I grade and have back to them in a flash; but other things, particularly writing, takes me (much) longer. I try to write specific comments and look out for things like grammar, etc. It can take a while. I have 27 kids in my homeroom, but also teach the other 5th grade class ELA, so when it comes time to grade writing, I am looking at over 50 papers, which can seem a bit much.

    Some things I have them peer-correct in class, but not too often (esp. if I am using it as a grade). Otherwise, I try to get a few things done at school. The rest I do, usually on my sofa with one of those cushioned lap tables and a heating pad on my back. If it's an easy thing to grade, I will keep half an eye on the TV.

    I've also learned that I do not have to correct and grade every thing they hand in.
