An alternative to random partner selection, these buddy cards are a permanent buddy selection tool to use throughout the year. This system is super easy and convenient to use as the year goes on, and saves tons of time choosing partners or "buddies" in class.
**This product includes 6 PNG images to in order for you to create an editable document for placement of student names on each partner card in the format and font of your choice.**
Create student pairings using the student buddy spreadsheet provided. Once your student pairings are complete, make one buddy card for each student. These buddy cards are in PNG format for your convenience in creating cards. (If you are using in Powerpoint, simply place three cards per page, add your font and text and then "duplicate page" for quickest creating!). Please download the **PREVIEW** for more information and examples.
You choose how you want students to be paired. There are some suggestions included, but you customize your teacher "cheat" card to know what type of buddy you are selecting.
When it comes time to pair up, simply tell students to meet with their "purple buddy" or "green buddy" and off they go!
