With a small group, maybe you can begin with structures that only need a pair or a team. For example, RoundRobin (team talks), perhaps you become the 4th person their team and model the sharing first as each student gets a turn to speak/practice etc. Pair structures allow for higher percentage of students verbalizing (50%) like Timed Pair Share, RallyRobin, or Match Mine - is great for language acquisition. Picture cards might support 1st graders, perhaps the team of 4 can practice using Fan-n-Pick too. Refer to your Kagan CL texbook, page 6.24 at the chart of structures. There are pair and team structures. Again, it's even better if you are a pair or a teammate etc. Thank you for the question! All the Best, ~Christi
