Spin Wheel

Teach Starter Publishing Suitable for grades:  PK - 6

Use this versatile online spinner widget in a variety of ways in your classroom!

How to Use This Spinner:

Change the words on the Spin Wheel via the setting menu. You can choose one of your saved Word Lists or add the words to the text box separated by commas. When you’re done, just click “Spin” in the middle of the wheel!

Customize your Word Lists so they are ready to use with your class anytime!

Ways to Use This Spinner in the Classroom:

  • Input your students’ names into the wheel to choose a student at random. This works well for assigning classroom jobs, answering a question, or coming to the board to play the teacher’s assistant!
  • Input different prizes into the wheel and use it as your classroom prize wheel! When your class has earned a reward, project the spin wheel on the screen and hit “Spin”. Choosing a classroom prize has never been so easy!
  • The Spin Wheel is perfect to use for spin-and-speak activities. Simply input different sentence starters that students must complete with a partner. Looking for a great getting-to-know-you activity for back to school? Why not input different favorite scenarios like favorite food, favorite movie, favorite outdoor activity, and then hit “Spin”. As the wheel is spinning, students roam around the classroom. When it stops, they find the person closest to them and answer the prompt!
  • Trying to find a quick activity for your students to practice blends? We have one for you! Simply input different blends your students are working on and hit “Spin”. Set a timer and have your students make a list of words that include that blend.

The ideas are endless with this simple spinner app!
