Yes, we always do.

Sometimes, we mark each other homework.

My teacher gets us to mark first by flashing the answer key on the screen. Its hard to mark wrongly, for she will go through the questions we got wrong, even if only one person gets it wrong. Then she will collect back to mark the corrections and to mark the open-ended(for english). For maths, we do self-marking for the whole paper, then she goes through and finally she marks every question again.

My entire class loves our math teacher. She dam dam dam dam kind one. Very smart also. If one person dont know one question, she will dont mind to repeat it a million times for the child to understand. We also mark our own papers. Then she checks.

My maths teacher is my ft. :) My teacher is like you, if we don't understand, she will explain and explain until you get it, even if it means you have to sacrifice your recess time. Of course, she will give you a break to get your recess later.:)
