This 19-page Partner Picker package is a creative way to group students when they are required to work in pairs. There are 15 pages of cards (4 cards or 2 pairs per page!). 12 cards contain words that are opposites so they are also useful if you start a unit on antonyms. The rest of the cards are pictures of items that are similar or that go together. The cards can also be used for a memory/ match game on a rainy day or as a quiet activity when their work is finished.
Use them as creative writing prompts, vocabulary builders and for spelling lists.
Just laminate and cut apart! Hold them face down and allow the children to each choose a card. When they all have one, they can all turn them over and then find their partners. It will allow them to move about the classroom freely for a short period of time.
The students will learn to interact with each other in a positive way as this eliminates the anxiety of being chosen last. As they enjoy fun, educational activities, they will learn to adjust to working with randomly chosen classmates. It’s a skill that will serve them well academically as well as socially.
Due to the digital nature of this product, no refunds will be given.
I hope that your students will enjoy this package!
