This 19-page Partner Picker package is a creative way to group students when they are required to work in groups of three. The cards are grouped into groups of three pictures which relate to each other in some way. The cards can also be used for a memory/ match game on a rainy day or as a quiet writing assignment when their work is done.
Just laminate and cut apart! Hold them face down and allow each student to choose a card. When they all have one, they can turn them over and then find the other two students who will be 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. It puts the students into collaborative partnerships without the anxiety of being chosen last or being excluded for any reason. Usually, students enjoy working with their friends but this way of forming random groups allows students to experience the process of adjustment and gives them an opportunity to work efficiently within a new group. This is essential to their academic and social growth.
Due to the digital nature of this product, no refunds will be given.
I hope your students will enjoy using these cards!
