Student Grading Helpers {Tried it Tuesday}

This week I had one of those wish-I'd thought-of-this-earlier moments. With 13 days left I guess it's better late than never! 

I have one class in particular that is very talkative. There are also a lot of quick workers in this group, so that makes for a bad combo sometimes. 
Yesterday I wanted to do a cut and paste activity and give immediate feedback since we are reviewing for our SOL test. I used a highlighter to check the first finisher's paper and then gave them a highlighter and let that person check the next paper and so on. 

Everyone was busy, either working or checking, and only people who were quiet could check another paper. It was a win, win! 

That's what I tried this week. What have you tried? Head on over to link up with Holly.


  1. I may have to try this one! If only they would stop talking all the time.

  2. I LOVE having kids help grade papers. It makes my life easier and they like the immediate feedback. XO
