So, the game of tic tac toe has students reviewing homographs, homophones, independent clauses and all that academic vocal that always escapes them. However, this is just review so every kid can play. Basic Tic Tac Toe Rules. This one takes a little more time setting up than my other centers simply because you got to print on card stock and make the cards front and back. And then LAMINATE! (You know you love the laminator... don't lie to me....) I prefer to print on alternating colors of cardstock so that player #1 is a different color than player #2 and both are completely different colors from the partner sets sitting next to them. I keep the cards in little ziploc bags. I typically had students make their own playing mats on the white boards.
