Looking for new ways to randomly pair your students for cooperative learning? These partnering cards are a fun way to do just that, plus they get the kids up and moving (built in brain break)!
Each set features 24 cards (12 pairs) that go together in some way. Just pass them out and have students get up and find their partner.
Items that go together (peanut butter/jelly, pencil/paper, hand/glove, etc.)
Beginning sounds match (carrot/cat, popcorn/penguin, sun/snail, etc.)
Color match (match the crayon with the color word) – This is the only set that requires any kind of reading.
Food halves – Each card shows half of a food item. Students pair up with their other half.
