Need a fun, creative way to group students or facilitate partner discussions. These cute student grouping and partner cards are an easy way to manage your student discussions and activities. This packet includes 28 grouping cards in 3 different colors. The cards measure 8 inches by 8 inches. Many times in class we have students talk as a whole group, put students in small groups, talk to shoulder buddies, or work with desk buddies. These cute beach themed grouping cards are very easy to use. Simply lay a card in the center of a community of desks (this especially is easy if the desks are in groups of 4. Students use the letters and numbers to see who they will talk to or work on activities with. For example, if the grouping cards has the numbers 1 to 4 or the letters A to D, then place the card in the center of the group of desks and which ever letter or number they has is used to group students. Another way to use this item is to group students by their talking partners in class. An example of how to use the cards for partner discussions is by using the cards with only 2 numbers or letters on them. Partners that have 1's will talk and partners with 2's will talk in class.
