Cooperative Learning & a Giveaway

My school has been taking part in Classroom Instruction that Works for professional development.  I feel that even before we received this training, most if not all teachers incorporated this into their classrooms to some extent, so it has not been a huge change.  One thing that it includes is a lot of cooperative learning!  I use this so that there is not any arguing about who is working with who, and also to encourage kids to work with students that they may not otherwise work with.  Since I have a sports themed classroom (and have had a ocean themed classroom in the past), I am willing to give away either my sports or my ocean themed partner/group matching cards (your choice) to the first two people who comment with their e-mail address below.  I am linking to them both in my TPT store, so that you can see what I am talking about.


  1. I would love to get this! Thanks.
