Here’s a fun way to quickly pair students for activities, AND it exposes them more vocabulary without any effort at all. This bundle includes 8 animal partner sheets- enough to last you all year long! I like to introduce a new animal sheet each month with my high schoolers. I imagine that younger learners would love them too!
Students preselect nine classmates they would like to work with and fill out a Compañeros del animal sheet. Then, whenever the teacher wants students to chat in pairs, play a partner game or simple just move them around during class, the teacher announces "Siéntate con tu compañero de_______". Students check their paper and sit with their assigned partner. Not only does it make it quick and easy to transition between activities, you'll love to see your students using lots of different animals they've acquired in their stories and writing...without every have to "learn" animal names!
Included in this Compañeros de animales bundle, you'll find 8 different partner sheets, detailed instructions on setting them up and using them in class, a video showing the set up in action, a list of partner activities with detailed instructions that lend themselves well to partner activities, and a question sheets to accompany each partner sheet to facilitate conversation about the animals, even early in level 1!
