Use these simple picture/letter/number cards to create cooperative groupings of two, three, or four students. Great for Get One Give One. Includes directions on how to use them.
Students silently walk around the room holding their card in front of their shirt, then find their partner or group, and wait for all to finish. Doesn't take long.
Preassign work areas and tasks for best results. The first time it takes longer, but once they get the hang of it, it's fast and versatile.
Students with no English can use them, too. Go over the pictures if you think anyone might have trouble recognizing them.
