If you were to have rubber stamps made to save on writing during marking...

    My first stamp would be:
    'Underline all titles with a ruler'
    and I'd also have
    ' "A lot" is two words', and " 'Would have', not 'would of' "

    I wonder what other stamps we could have made to save so as to avoid writing the same thing many times....

    I do have one of those stamps, and yes it os amassive timesaver, it says, "Remember to use paragraphs correctly. Think TiP ToP"

    I wish I had one saying, "Please write date out in full" though.

    "OF" IS NOT A VERB!
    TO IMPROVE, YOU MUST:
    and, in my dreams:
    Were you listening when I taught you this?

    haha! Love this. I must have £60 of stamps right now, with more on the way. I have:

    Mr Quill says good work: my merit stamp
    Objective completed: my tick equivalent
    Punctuation needed: for all classes
    Connective needed: largely for essay writing
    Target: generic stamp from AfL to neatness

    My major mistake, though, was ordering a stamp that said 'oral feedback' rather than 'verbal feedback'. Really should have realised.
     
  5. I would need one that said 'For the love of God, would you please write next to the margin; I could drive a bike down here"
     
  6. Would you recommend any particular place to get personalised stamps from?

    Don't know if this allowed with advertising restrictions, but there is a little independent shop that has served me superbly well for all my time in Yorkshire http://www.makeyourmark.biz/
     
  8. I would get this, and use it all the time:

    tl;dr
