Working in pairs happens a lot in classrooms. This often means students finding their friends and going with the same one or two people each time.
This resource saves time and gives the students a variety of partners to work with. It requires 10 - 20 minutes to set up at the start of the school year, then it takes 10 - 20 seconds every time you want your students paired up from there on in.
The template comes in a word document so you can change the colors, or change it back to black and white so students can add their own individuality to it.
Its fun, easy and takes that painful 'i haven't got a partner' away from everyday classroom life.
