My wife is a middle school teacher. She spends a great deal of time grading her student papers. Here's what she has to say about the use of self-inking rubber stamps:
"As a Language Arts & Reading teacher, much time is required to grade each student's written assignments and assessments. I have found the convenience of self-inking rubber stamps help to redeem that valuable time. Messages such as "Great work," "WoW," "You ROCK", and "Awesome!" are an easy and whimsical way to communicate to the student work well done. Other self-inking rubber stamps I use are our class mascot (which happens to be a bee), "Name?," "Please finish," and "Please see me." Rubber stamps have saved me time while conveniently communicating those important messages to my students about their academic performance. I sincerely enjoy using them!"
