Need a new way to assign partners for an activity in class? Use pencils! Simply collect a variety of pencils with different colors or designs. Before the activity, pass out pencils to the class and then ask the kiddos to find the match to their pencil. Wallah! You now have partners for an activity or game! For added fun let them use the pencils for the activity. Collect pencils and save them for the next time you need to give the kids a buddy.
I found this neat idea from the Mailbox and thought I'd share!! Pure genius! ha
