PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I use these cards when a random pairing can be used for an assignment. You can quickly pass these out or have students draw one from a hat. They then have 30 seconds {or time limit of your choice} to find their partner. My students always enjoy doing this and it gives them a short amount of time to move freely about the room.

Super easy to use and the kids enjoy the challenge of finding their partners. Now when I say, "For this activity you will have partners." They ask if I have my partner picking cards.
The one thing I would recommend, is that you have to print these cards in colour. As black and white cards are hard to see.

I can see possibilities in these sets, going beyond just picking partners. They could be used to pick groups if you made several sets. For instance, all the Shrek cardholders would have to visit the Fiona table.

Thank you and thank you for taking the time to ask! Since this is a free product, I don't have any problem with it being shared around. I would appreciate you letting them know where the product came from in case they want to look for other products in the future. That would be my only request.

Thanks again! I hope your team will find these useful as well.
