Students are often partnered off for activities in the classroom, but sometimes arguments ensue if the decisions aren't made proactively. In music class, students are frequently paired off for longways set dancing, partner dancing, mirror or shadow movement, circle dances, and small group work. Partner cards are a fun, simple way to divide students into pairs while keeping the classroom environment safe for those students who are often not selected, reinforcing a positive social emotional learning atmosphere for your responsive classroom needs. My students love finding out who their partner will be and discovering how various common things in their lives pair up! Packet includes both color photo partner cards and black and white clip art cards to meet your printing needs. Great for ANY classroom, included the general elementary classroom, PE, art, library, and STEM.

The pair combinations include:

  • Bee and beehive
  • Hamburger and fries
  • Cake and ice cream

  • Dog and dog bone
  • Milk and cookies
