Random Partner Activity - iPartners

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 2 pages | Grades: 2 - 6

Assign random partners in your classroom with this iPhone template.

Use this teaching resource at the beginning of the school year to set up random partners to use throughout the school year.

Print the two pages front-to-back, and choose for it to flip along the short edge. It also works best if you choose for it to print ‘actual size’ instead of ‘fit to page’. This will ensure the template prints correctly.

Give each student an iPartners activity sheet. Students will find 8 classmates to add to their ‘favorites’ list. The students must agree to the partnership and they must share an empty number in their favorites list. If they agree and share an empty number, then they write each other’s names on their favorites list as the same number, i.e., Terrance is in the 6th position on Lydia’s list, and Lydia is in the 6th position on Terrance’s list. If they do not share an empty number, they may not be iPartners.

When this process has been completed, have students fold their paper showing only the front of their iPhone and place inside of a folder to be used at a later time. When you are ready to assign random partners for an assignment or project, simply ask your students to pull out their iPartner phones and partner up with number ___ on their favorites list. Your students will love it!

Use the drop-down menu to choose between the color or black and white version.
