Product Description

This resource contains cooperative grouping cards which make assigning groups and jobs easy. The cards are available for groups of 4 or groups of 6. They can be adjusted for other combinations.

The cards tell the students in which desk to sit and the job they should do while sitting at that desk.

Jobs include:

  • Coordinator: Ensures that everyone in the group is focused and working on the task.
  • Manager: a) Collects materials needed for the task. b) Ensures the group is clean and organized at the end of lesson.
  • Detective: a) Reminds the group to keep their voices at an appropriate level. b) Ensure classroom rules are followed by the group.
  • C.E.O.: a) Ensures everyone in the group participates. b) Asks the teacher questions when needed.
  • Writer: Records the group’s ideas using words, symbols, and/or drawings.
  • Teacher: Explains the group’s thoughts and ideas with the class.

Desks/Jobs may be switched as often as you like. I would suggest once a week or a the beginning of each new project.

Groups should be numbered, and then each seat within the group will be lettered. For example, Group 1, may have 6 seats labeled: 1A, 1B, 1C, 1D, 1E, 1F. You may want to print 2 copies of the cards – one the adhere to the desks and the other to pass out to the students. My students are notorious for picking at things stuck to their desk, so I just wrote the number and letter on each desk with a sharpie.

Before passing out the cards, I stack them by color. There is only one color at each group. You always have that group of kids you do not want working together. Instead of telling them, I just give them each a card from the bottom of the stack. As a result, they each end up at different groups. I switch up which color I give them, so they get a chance to get to do all the jobs.
