Wheel of Reading

I wanted to share an activity from our Starfall lesson today. It is called the Wheel of Reading. It is basically a kid friendly version of hangman. If students guess a letter that is not in the teacher-selected word, it goes in one of the eight sections of the wheel. If a letter is guessed that is already in the wheel the teacher places a check mark in the wheel. This way students learn to be better listeners so they will not lose a turn. The teacher gets a point if the wheel fills up before the students guess the word. This will be a great activity to use on the rare occasion that we finish something sooner than planned!
