Group / Team Management Mats are an excellent instrument that helps organize classroom activities. The Management Mats will help students work in cooperative groups allowing them to complete tasks together toward their academic success. The Team Management Mats can be used with any subject within any grade level. Just print, laminate, and start the group learning.
There are a total of eight mats included. Each mat is a different color and they have all been given a special team name.
Ways to Organize Students into Groups:
In each group of four the students has their own seat number (1-4).
Each group has a pentagon, parallelogram, hexagon, and a trapezoid shape to represent the four students in that group. You can elaborate on the shapes by calling on the students who have the shape with three sets of parallel lines, the shape with five sides or the shape that has two sets of obtuse angles.
By the color of the group
By the name of the group
By even and odd numbers
By having the students share with their shoulder buddy (the students sitting side by side).
By having students share with their face friend (the students sitting across from one another).
