Read on to see a mini grammar review of 'there', 'they're' and 'their' and some examples of how we use these words:
There = Pronoun for a general place
Would you place my drink over there, please?
They're = Short form (and most common pronunciation of) 'they are'

Their = Shows possession
I need to give my students their corrected homework back tomorrow.
