Cooperative learning is a cornerstone in my math classroom. I use this tag at the center of my team tables as a friendly reminder to students. From one simple mat my students know their team number, student number, and pair letter...as well as a reminder of who acts as their face and shoulder partners. Kagan offers a classroom set of team mats at a very reasonable price. Their color scheme is blue and purple. Unfortunately, those colors don't align with my color scheme. I created a team tag template to print on cork scrapbook paper and then added circles, numbers, and letters cut with my Cricut Expression. I backed the thin scrapbook paper with a piece of white cardstock and laminated them in the thick pouches offered by the Staples print center.
