Ready, Set, Groups: Cooperative Grouping Guide

Does cooperative grouping make you want to pull your hair out? If your district is like mine, it is a big part of your evaluation scores. Last year, I really focused on making sure my groups ran smoothly and without too much input from me. It was amazing how independently my kiddos worked by the end of the year by taking the time to set up my procedures at the beginning of the year. 

So I am introducing you to my newest creation: 

I've included lots of ideas that helped me get my groups set up and running smoothly. 

I will probably be adding more to this document as the year goes on. I hope you like it!

It's now in my TPT store and will be on sale through Sunday evening. Click on any of the pictures to view in TPT.

Enjoy your weekend!


  1. OMG- buying this RIGHT now. I taught ELA to two groups this year and one of my groups could not do ANYTHING without fighting about it. By the end of the year, I felt like I couldn't play games with that group or do anything fun because every time we did group work, there were tears and hurt feelings!

    This looks great!

  2. As a first year second grade teacher, I was overwhelmed with small independent groups last year. Boy, did I need this! In my cart right now! THANK YOU!
