Here’s a great way to arrange 12 partner options for each student BEFORE you need it! Print this page on a sheet of colored card stock (so it’ll last the entire semester/year). Tell students to make an appointment with 12 different people (one for each hour on the clock). Be sure they both record the appointments on their clocks. Tell students they can only make the appointment if there is an open slot at that hour on both of their clocks. Then when you need to do partner work, you can call out “10 o’clock buddy!” and everyone will know who to go work with.
