This partner activity helps students find commonalities between each other the first week of school, and helps you easily group students all year long!
Students pair up based on your instruction, and they write each other's name on their pail. Throughout the year, all you have to do is call out a number, and the students find the partner whose name is on that number! It makes partnering students so much easier and it's a fun partner activity for Back to School season!
Make this student grouping resource fit your needs by making your own instructions for finding partners! If you have any special requests, let me know and I can edit this resource to help you!
Included in this resource:
+ Four Versions of the Pails of Pals, so you can choose what's best for your students
+ Instructions for you, the teacher, and for pairing up the students
+ Bulletin Board letters if you choose to display the pails in your classroom all together
This is a resource that keeps on giving and will save your teacher sanity by grouping students without tears, fighting, or complaining!
