When might you use these different types of grouping?

There are many types of grouping that can happen in our classrooms. Teachers rely on ability grouping or flexible grouping, but consider stepping outside of the box and try some new ideas for grouping, for example:
-subject knowledge –interest -multiage -share the same birth month -shirt color -ask them to pair up and then split the pairs into two whole groups (or anything else fun that can causes different types of pairing)
