Do you ever have your students count off to randomly put them into cooperative groups? If so, now you can group them and have them practice Common Core skills at the same time!
Just pick a set and pass out one card to each student in your class. Students compare cards with each other and form groups.
Instructions and answers are included.
Why Group Students with these Cards? Because you can...
*Practice skills and randomly group students for various activities at the same time!
*Build the classroom community by having students work with other students they wouldn't normally choose to work with.
*Use to reposition students around the classroom. For example, my classroom is set up in tables. Periodically, I'll have my students move to another table to continue working. The new location helps to break up the task. Often, just getting up and moving to a new place can give a student a fresh start.
*Use for Jigsaw Activities (activities where each student in a group brings information he or she received in a different group).
*Have a couple of minutes of transition time? Use them to review skills and get students moving to connect to kinesthetic learners.
*Cards can be used multiple times with the same students to practice skills.
