These grouping cards provide teachers with an easy way to group students and assign roles in just one step. This set creates 5 groups of 4. Both the full color and the black-n-white versions are included in this download.
With these cards, you can group students according to:
cards of the same color
cards with the same numbers in the stars
cards with the same letters in the circles
(The beauty of this is even when you pass out the cards, students never quite know who is in their group until you announce how the groups will be decided.)
These cards also assign each group member with a different responsibility.
Supplier- gathers, maintains, collects and returns all supplies for the group
Leader- keeps everyone organized, guides the group to complete the task correctly
Writer- acts as scribe and/or illustrator during group work
Time Keeper- keeps all members on task, assures the task is completed on time
*During the activity, everyone contributes thoughts and ideas to support the group’s work.
