I remember that with first and up papers were graded. Or maybe they were just stamped at first? Anyways something to show that they were looked at. But what about K? Are papers graded? Should they be graded? Or is it ok to give the kids a break their first year and enjoy doing their work instead of prematurely getting them to start being apprehensive about how 'good' they are doing? (I hope they don't have to get graded) Or is it up to individual teachers?
