This activity went well in my high beginning class. I put students into groups and had them work together to find all of the mistakes. The first group to finish was the winner. I then walked around from group to group and check their corrections and gave them guidance and explanation when they were stuck. I circled the error number for each line once I had checked that they had corrected everything. This helped me keep track of where each group was.

If your class is struggling with particular errors, you can write a paragraph like this one containing examples of that error for students to work together to identify and solve. You can find a template of this document to modify at this link:
