I am planning to split my class into two groups. Then they only have half of the kids to choose from (even less when you take out the kids that I will be working with at my reading table).
Then I wanted to find a way split the class in half and make it something fun for the kids. So I came up with .... Peanut Butter and Jelly partners! I will put their name on a tag that has peanut butter or jelly on it. They will magnet to either the white board or the heating unit in my room. That way I will be able to see who they pick and we can put them up at the end of the day, or leave them so I can see that they pick a different partner the next day!
Aren't they soooo cute!?!?
