Even though there are a million and one things I will do differently next year, grading seems to be ok for me. I grade everything that day. Once in awhile I leave writing projects for the weekend, but never longer than that. If I find myself getting behind, I will either correct papers as a class or have students help me (depending on what it is to be graded). I have 31 kids this year and sometimes grading one assignment takes forever. I try to keep them short and sweet... my assignments and quizzes are usually to make sure the student is understanding the material. I also have a system for comments. For example, I was spending way too much time writing handwriting comments. Now I circle key areas and write letters at the top such as "H" for "watch the height of your letters." Hope this helps some!
