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 is an editable PowerPoint file made for you to type in your student names quickly and conveniently.**
Create student pairings using the student buddy organizer provided. Once your student pairings are complete, make one buddy card for each student. These buddy cards are completely editable for you to type in the student name at the bottom, and then student buddies under each icon.
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 "heart buddy" or "bug buddy" and off they go!
