Self Correcting Materials
If I had to list some of my top favorite classroom items self checking materials would make that cut, especially during stressful weeks. I have honestly asked myself many times, Didn’t I just grade this? after the 3rd round of editing or endless piles of mad minutes.
For those who may be unfamiliar with the term or unsure what self checking tasks can be a huge time saver and many examples are posted here! Keep reading for ideas and links to self checking games, activities, worksheets, and other items to use in your classroom.

- Color the answer math worksheets (Mystery picture math)
- Color by sight word (Similar concept to above)
- Solve a riddle after your work is completed pages
- Puzzles students can match math facts, parts of speech, words to colors, or anything else you can think of.
- Computer programs ( Many tell students to re-do what they got wrong or keep them on level until a concept is completed. There are also programs and games that can e-mail you with student quiz results!)
- Online math and language games
- Matching activities
- Window reviling cards
- Flap fold over papers
- Quizlet (depending how you use it)
- Board games for review or understand language/ math skills, takes a bit of time to create but can be used year to year if laminated. Move forward if correct and back if not. (Try to use popular games students know such as Sorry, Monopoly, Shoots and Ladders etc. Many old boards can be gotten at Goodwill and reused for this!)
