Want an easy way to group students "randomly," while controlling the number of students in each group? These printable cards will allow you to group your students in the following arrangements quickly and easily:
Groups of 2
Groups of 3
Groups of 4
Groups of 6/6 groups
Simply laminate the cards, cut them out, and pass them out to your students. Then tell them how to locate their group members - for example by finding the person who has a homophone for the word at the top of their card, or finding all the people who have a matching star color. Be sure to collect the cards at the end of the activity to keep your set intact. Or, use clear packaging tape to stick the cards to the top of student desks or tables for year-round reference.
