Clock Buddies??

Can someone please explain how to use this idea so that the popular kids aren't on everyone's card or that the low kids are left out altogether.

I do this on the first day, and I use one with all 12 spaces. I have them move about the room and find 12 different people. They can't have any repeats. There ever seems to be any problems with only having popular kids.

Clock Partners

We filled ours out the third day of school and have used them twice. I have the students find their one o'clock partner, stand by them, until everyone has a partner. Then they sign. Repeat with two o'clock. As you move around the clock I found it important to stop and see that everyone had a partner. Otherwise, two kids will be left who have already signed each others clocks.

I have never had this activity be easy. Much like the PP, I had everyone move and once they all had partners, I matched up the "left-over" kids. Then they could sign one o'clock. Repeat for each number. It's tedious, but nice when you want them to share or form groups quickly.

I just did this last week with my students. I have half of the class stand on an "outside" circle and the other half of the class stand on the "inside" circle. Then, I have ONE part of the circle rotate to the right one spot and then they sign each other's sheet. Then they rotate another spot and sign, etc. Until the whole chart is filled in! Some students have the same clock partner for different times (that is okay!) I also have an odd number of students. One of my higher students "volunteered" to have more than one buddy at each interval of his clock, so he essentially has 3 partners instead of two. It worked out GREAT and the students LOVE it!

I give specific requirements, such as boys must include at least 5 girls and girls must include at least 5 boys. I also take a few of my more understanding students aside and ask them to ask the students that others might not. Names are never mentioned, and I ask them to go to those students first. Before we begin, I also mention to the class that NO one is to left out or I will redo everyone clocks myself.

I would like to know if I could see a sample of what the clock looks like. Also, what if you have 30 students in a class? How would you use this? Does each 5 or 6 clocks have different names on tham? What if someone loses thier clock?

I don't have a copy of my clock, but I make them small enough to fit 4 on a page, then laminate them and tape them on their desks. That way they are always there and no searching for it in their desks.
