Grading center work

My first year teaching I was initially told not to grade center work, but have found that you have to keep your students accountable for some of the work they do. You'll always end up with those students who think center time is free time. I make a list with the center activities for the week and check mark boxes next to them. This way at the end of the week, they have to hand it in with everything they completed stapled to it. I might not grade all of it, but I check to make sure they were on task throughout the week. A couple of years ago, I would indicate to my students which work would be graded each week...these are just a few suggestions. More than likely, you'll have to see what works best for you and your students.
