FREE Partner Picking Cards

I've just uploaded a FREEBIE on my TPT Store!

So, on a side note, I'd love for you to follow me on Teachers Pay Teachers!  My little store is brand-spanking new, but I promise to fill it up soon!  

Partner Picking Cards ~ Pictures of famous, well-known 'partners'.

I use these cards when a random pairing can be used for an assignment. 

You can quickly pass these out or have students draw one from a hat. They then have 30 seconds {or time limit of your choice} to find their partner. 

My students always enjoy doing this and it gives them a short amount of time to move freely about the room.

Here's a sample of 1 of the 5 pages of cards:


Making It {and smiling},


  1. This is a very creative idea. I chuckled when I saw the milk and cookies "well known partners. I am a new follower. Come by and visit my blog sometimes. I am a k-8th grade instructional coach and always try to find creative ways to teach. My recent posts include 3D worksheets and Empty Altoid Center Learning Centers

  2. Found several things I am using TODAY! Integers and Photosynthesis/Respiration....You've made my day brighter and my students will thank you...Maybe not...but I will! :)

  3. This is a great idea. Thanks for sharing. I'm an American teaching in the UK, so it will be interesting to see how many of the pairs they aren't sure of (e.g. baseball v. cricket, peanut butter). I love bringing my culture into the classroom.

  4. This is my first visit to your blog! We are a team of volunteers and new initiatives in the same niche. Blog gave us useful information to work. You have done an amazing job, Visit :
