Product Description
This product includes 3 set of Flexible grouping/cooperative learning cards (16,24,36). These cards allow for teachers to group students quickly and randomly in order to promote an organic cooperative learning opportunity.

Each set of cards has at least 4 ways to group the students. This is vital because if there are students that you do not want together or ca't work together the teacher can calls another group category not worry about moving individual students. No two students will be in the same group twice.

Examples of how to use in the classroom:
For me personally when I was in the classroom I would use these cards for review, exploration, discussion, etc... Example # 1 - I would choose one important question that I would like for the class to answer. I would call out a category, allow the students to move to their groups. I would then pose the question aloud. The students would discuss in small group. I would then call another group category, pose the same question, allow them to discuss. Why this strategy worked. All of the students are hearing the question/answer multiples times, from multiple perspectives, and are able to discuss it with others. For my ELL/SPED students they are hear the question and answer multiple times which will help them to retain the information. Example #2 - I would have 5 different questions that I would want the the class to discuss. I would call groups based on color. I would state the question and allow them to discuss. Next I would call groups based off of their numbers (all of the 1's, 2's, 3's, etc...) and then ask another question. The end of the lesson the students would have formed 4-5 groups and answer 4-5 questions. This gave students multiple opportunities to speak, students were working with all learning levels, Students that are shy are able to speak up because of the small group, Students that aren't sure if their answer is right get the opportunity to hear what others think and share their answer in a safe non threatening environment.
