Pick a Partner Resource

Wow... it's been a long time since I've been able to blog! I don't know about you, but I could certainly use a vacation, Spring Break is just around the corner for me and I'm hanging in there.

My district is moving toward the Kagan Cooperative Learning Model, however I have not been trained yet. In the meantime, I created a resource that will hopefully save me some time in the classroom. I spend entirely too much time, choosing my students partners. I try to control who partners with who but at this point in the year I need to step back and allow my students to make their own choices. 

I came up with a partner resource pack. There are 3 different versions to choose from. Print and color for your convenience. I even included a slideshow to use with the Partner Sheets. 
  • Partner Sheet- have students choose 6 different partners, they should each write their name for the same food match. 
  • Partner Cards- give each student a card, have them pair up with someone who has the same card as them. 
  • Individual Cards- give each student a card, have them find the “food match.”
