FUN! FUN! FUN! Instead of just numbering students off into groups in the "old fashioned way," I have them close their eyes, and I put stickers/labels on their foreheads! When I say, "Go!" they start roaming the room, looking for their "matches." You don't have to put the stickers on their foreheads -- the possibilities are endless, but the kids do enjoy the silliness, and it is just an fun way to review basic skills while separating for group/partner work.
This set includes synonyms. For fun, you can have the students complete this activity without speaking. They can help each other to "act out" each other's labels.
The template (5160) is compatible with Avery 8160 labels (1" x 2 5/8")
