We do a lot of partner work in my classroom. My students tend to choose the same friend to work with over and over again. I created an iBuddy Phone for students to use to choose different partners for partner work.
Each student will get a copy of the iBuddy Phone. Then they will find nine different friends they would like to buddy up with for partner work. For each partner they choose, both students will need to sign their name under the same number on both phones. For example, if Chase and Max want to be partners, they will both need to sign their names under the same number on both of their iBuddy Phones. Then when the teacher calls out any number 1-9, the students can look at their iBuddy Phones and see which partner they should work with.
I have included two different sizes for you to choose from.

I hope this is a freebie you can use in your room, too! I would love for you to leave feedback!
