A quick and easy way to get students into pairs for activities. At the beginning of each quarter, pass out a copy to each student and give them 5 minutes to find a partner for each hour. Each student will write each others' names on the line corresponding to the hour they will share. When you need students to pair up, simply call out an hour. If the partner is absent, they join another pair to form a group of 3. This works best if you purchase one of the $1 cardboard or plastic clocks at the dollar store and tape it to your front white/blackboard so you can easily show them the hour for which you would like them to pair-up (for those who struggle with oral instructions).
