Looking for a creative way to partner your students up? Give each of your students a clock buddy sheet. For each time slot, have students find a partner. They write each other's names for the clock time. Fill in all 12 time slots. It works well if you let them pick their partner for some of the time slots, and you pair some students in other time slots. The idea is for students to get different classmates for each of the time slots. Have your students store the clock buddy sheet in a safe place, and whenever students need a partner throughout the year, just call out any clock time. Partners are instantly decided!
