    Clock Partners
    By 2ndgradeteacher

    I'm planning to use this system with my third graders this year. You might want to visit this post, where some wonderful teachers shared their ideas with me!

    I intend to spend one of the early days of school getting these clocks set up and then make some photocopies of them so that the students have a copy to glue into their folder of notebook and then I also have a copy to keep in case they lose their copy.

    One of the ideas I got for organzing the clocks originally is to go through the clock one hour at a time and allow the students to only fill that time in, before moving on. It will be made clear to my students that this is an opportunity to work with many different people throughout the year and that they are not permitted to have the same student name on their clock more than once. I actually set up my own clock based on the samples I was given because I only have 17 or 18 students in my class and therefore could make it so that most students partnered up with each other student. For the "odd" student, I'm going to have them place a question mark and then they will know to come to me desk if they have the question mark and I will either pair them up with someone whose partner is absent or have them work with another group. I love this idea, because I can make sure my students interact and work with each other throughout the year, without the same students being together (on purpose or by accident as it always seems to happen that way!)

    Good luck!
