What you will be getting is a total of 32 cards, or 8 groups.
You will be making a set of cards (I recommend laminating them) to hand out to kids as they walk into class or in the middle of class to make random groups.
What is nice is that the kids have no clue what you are going to class, so if you have kids swapping cards to have the same color as their friends you can call shapes or numbers. There are no two cards that are alike. It is funny because kids will tell other kids that I just called numbers in the last class so they will try to prepare but then I can mix it up and call something else.
It is a fast easy way to make random groups.
** I teach math so the words on the cards are for math, but you can easily change the words or pictures to fit your content area.**
