Grouping Strategies

o By appointment or assignment (Map Pairs, Round the Clock Pairs)
o Colored index cards or sticks (One of each color, or all the same color)
o Find your mate (Colors, objects, pictures, puzzle pieces, shapes, etc)
o Line-ups (Age, alphabetical order, birthday, color of clothing, eye color, hair color, height, number of siblings, etc.)
o Numbered heads together
o Pre-arranged groupings listed on the overhead
o Question-Answer (Half of the room are given questions in Spanish, the other half are given the corresponding answers. Students find their pairs by asking the questions and finding their peer who has the appropriate answer. Questions can be related to the activity and used to activate students’ prior knowledge.)
o Pre-arranged groupings listed on overhead or projector
