If you don’t know how to play (or need a refresher), please refer to the instructions on pages 3-4. (If you are a more visual learner, I suggest watching a video on YouTube!)
This is a great game to help your students review vocabulary, numbers, sentence structure and verb conjugation! This activity can be done in partners or even alone! It's also an awesome emergency substitute plan, as students can work with very little instruction.

Students can decide who their six partners will be. If Melissa and Stella want to be partners, they choose the same pictures on each of their Partner Pairs worksheets and write their names in the same places on both worksheets.

Later, when it’s time for students to work with a partner, the teacher can call out which partner pairs students will work with.
If the teacher calls out “Find your Cheese and Crackers partner!” Melissa and Stella will know to find each other and work together for this activity!
