Kids are abed, movie is loaded and ready to play (Tin Man, if anyone is interested--I like it a lot better than I like the Judy Garland The Wizard of Oz). As soon as the little noises stop, I start the movie, and start grading.
Honestly, I really do enjoy reading the papers. Some of the things the kids come up with are an absolute giggle-fest, like the image of a giant panda eating a handful of Viagra like they were Skittles, in one kid's paper (and yes, he did put it almost word-for-word exactly that way). It's assigning the grades that I hate doing.
