Manic Monday


As a teacher, the color red is one that I have grown a certain detest of because of it’s negative connotations.  I recall getting papers back as a student for many years with red marks all over them and feeling defeated.  As hard as I can, I try to not give that feeling to my students.  My grading color of choice is either green or purple.  These colors are less “harsh” and seem friendlier for some reason.  Even today, when my children come home with papers with red marks on them I feel the pain… Did red marks effect you as a student?
