Clock buddies are a classroom buddy system that ensures my students can quickly find a partner to work with. The one partner per o'clock time means that students aren't always working with the same partners.
Students select a partner using the following prompts:
1: Someone who you have not worked with before
2: Someone who you have fun with
3: Someone who keeps you focussed
4: Someone who thinks differently to you
5: Someone who has the same pet as you
6: Someone who has the same eye colour as you
7: Someone who has a similar hobby to you
8: Someone who has the same favourite colour as you
9: Someone who follows the same sporting team as you
10: Someone who hangs out in the same area of the school as you at lunchtimes
11: Someone who has the same number of siblings as you
12: Someone who you would like to get to know better
I have included several student recording sheets both colour and black and white. You can have your students write in the o'clock times or have them just read and record.
Once set up - I use clock buddies throughout the year and across subject disciplines to ensure students are working with a wide range of their classmates and to ensure we can find a partner without a fuss!
Hope it helps your grade!
