If you're like me, you are constantly trying to find new and fun ways to pair your students.
This packet contains the following partner pairing activities for you to use throughout the year:
Partner Clock: Students find 4 different friends and record their name next to 12:00, 3:00, 6:00 and 9:00. During an activity (or throughout the day) students can be called to work with their 12:00, 3:00, 6:00 or 9:00 partner.
Partner Compass: Students find 4 different friends and record their name next to N, S, E, and W. During an activity (or throughout the day) students can be called to work with their N, S, E or W partner.
Partner Pairs Matching Cards: A fun way to pair your students. Shuffle and distribute one card to each student. Provide students with time to walk around the room and find their partner with the matching card.
Buddy in a Bag: Write each name on a slip and place names in a bag or container. Pull names to choose partners or small groups. (I like to place each child's name on a large popsicle stick and place them in a cup to pull for different activities throughout the year).
