I absolutely love making my students' centers more meaningful by allowing students to check themselves. It's the perfect way for students to hold their own selves accountable for their work, and see how they are progressing with the skill!
This center practices identifying the correct usage of the varying forms of they're, their, and there in the context of sentences/situations.
Students will read the card, and decide which form the sentence should use.
Students will then lay the card in the appropriate pile on their mat.
When students have finished sorting, they can scan the QR code underneath of that heading on their mat to see what cards should be laying in that pile.
I glued the mat inside a file folder and attached a baggy with the cards inside for easy storage and usage for students. You could also store this in an actual folder, storage sized baggy, or mailing envelopes!
If you do not have technology to use the QR Codes, you could simply chop them off of the bottom and its as if they were never there!
