Wordless Wednesday - Partner Talk Strategy

Hellllooooo teacher friends!  Yep - I'm still alive.  ;)

I am joining Miss DeCarbo at Sugar and Spice for her fun linky party:  Wordless Wednesday!

We frequently use a partner talk strategy called, "Stand Up, Hand Up, Pair Up," but sometimes we need to do something different to change things up a bit.  In comes "Parallel Lines."

Partners discuss the topic, then one line stands and bumps down one person.  Ta-da!  They have a new partner to discuss with just like that!  (Tip - I often give the kids a fidget or small ball to show whose turn it is to talk.  That definitely helps.)

What other strategies do you use for partner talks?

Thanks for stopping by!  :)
