I like Keltikmom and Kinderkr4zy's approaches. I have always assumed that every teacher sets high expectations for behaviors and clear standards about including others without complaint so I assumed the OP was doing this. I've also been around the block enough to know that sometimes you have a student in your class who is just not a great partner. This isn't a matter of the other kids being unkind or noninclusive. Simply put, I've had kids in class who were selective mutes, complete non-English speakers, actively trying to hurt other children in class, or repeatedly calling other students names. Quite often, the kindest and quietest students are encouraged to work with these students....but even those kids need a break. Sometimes I'll work with them or I'll set up a trio.
