This Clock Buddies sheet is a useful way to pair students together for partner work without them choosing the same partner every time!
To set up Clock Buddies, take some time in class to tell the students "Find a partner for 1 o'clock and write their name in the 1 space. You can only partner with ONE person for 1 o'clock" (If there is an odd number, you may need to have 1 group of 3) Go through the rest of the clock telling students to find one partner for each number on the clock. It takes a little bit of time to set up, but then you will have a partner system that you can use all year long!
